Elvis still a star .. on Main Street

ELVIS’ of all looks and ages were on hand Saturday at the 22nd Annual Elvis Festival on Main Street in downtown Garden Grpve (Orange County Tribune photo by Jim Tortolano).

Elvis has not left the building … or at least a spot in the hearts of his fans and admirers, including some who were not even alive when he was.

The 22nd annual Elvis Festival returned to Garden Grove’s historic Main Street on Sunday, and a large crowd turned out under sunny skies. Parking was prized for several blocks by noon around the event, which covered the street between Garden Grove Boulevard and Acacia Parkway.

This year’s theme was “Follow That Dream,” and attendees followed performances from a wide variety of Elvis Presley tribute artists with a variety of looks, styles and even ages.

There was food and Elvis memorabilia for sale, a wide array of classic Cadillacs to admire and a group of adorable animals – some “hound dogs” and some cats – to consider adopting.

The event is organized by Jill Lloyd and supported several sponsors, including the Garden Grove Downtown Business Association.
