TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The coronavirus pandemic did not stop the Elvis Presley Birthplace from holding its Fan Appreciation Day.
Fans from near and far gathered at his birthplace Saturday to honor him.
Employees let ten people at a time tour the exhibits, and they also required everyone to wear face masks inside.
Margaret Guyton from Hollandale, Mississippi is 73 years old.
She said she waited her whole life to see where the king of rock and roll was raised.
“Well I’ve always been a big fan and I’m thoroughly enjoying seeing all this. I sure am," she said.
David, a fan from Texas, is one of the many people who traveled hours to celebrate Elvis Presley's legacy.
“It’s great to see the humble beginnings of people, such as Elvis. You know, he accomplished great things,” he said.
People usually have to pay to enter the exhibits, but they were able to tour for free on Fan Appreciation Day.
