The arrival of winter at Graceland was always a special time of year. It meant the arrival of the holidays in Memphis and the anticipation of all the fun things the season would bring, including decorating for Christmas, opening Christmas presents with friends and family, the annual New Year’s Eve party, Elvis’ birthday, building snowmen in the front yard of Graceland and more. Join us for the official Graceland Christmas event on November 21, 2014, as we kick off the holiday season with our annual Memphis Christmas Lights ceremony at Graceland!
John Stamos Flipped the Switch for Graceland Lighting Ceremony
Actor and Elvis fan John Stamos, who also voices Graceland's new iPad tours, flipped the switch on Elvis Presley's Graceland's lights and decorations on Nov. 21. He was joined by patients at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis. Santa, in a jumpsuit-inspired red suit, arrived by limousine and police escort. Watch the ceremony on Elvis Presley's Graceland Livestream page.
