Elvis Presley fans lined up in an afternoon drizzle Friday for a late-night procession past his grave at Graceland.
Presley died at Graceland on Aug. 16, 1977, and the procession, called the "Candlelight Vigil," is the highlight of a week-long series of fan-club meetings, dances and Elvis-impersonator contests.
The hardiest fans began lining up at the front gates in the early afternoon. Others browsed Graceland's sprawling souvenir shopping center or gathered under a large tent across the street from the famous white-columned house to listen to Elvis wannabes perform his favorite songs.
The procession — scheduled to begin about 9 p.m. — generally attracts several thousand participants and runs into the morning hours.
