TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Tuesday marked a very special birthday for the King of Rock 'N' Roll.

Elvis Presley was remembered on what would have been his 84th birthday.

The annual Elvis Birthday Celebration took place at the Elvis Presley Birthplace in Tupelo.

The party was complete with a king fit for a king.

Later that evening, the staff for the 2019 Tupelo Elvis Festival unveiled the official artwork for this year's event.

This year's theme is "You may have a pink Cadillac, but don't you be nobody's fool."

Each year's festival features regional, national and local artists, along with a Sunday gospel concert and a tribute artist contest.
