One night with you, is what I’m now praying for.
Summer may kick off for most on Memorial Day but for me the past couple years it has been at the end of May during ElvisFest in Lake George, NY. This year was certainly no different than years past and my summer got kicked off in a dream filled land of Elvis’, sunshine and fun! Unlike years past, this was the first time I wasn’t in college and could get upstate earlier and see more of the festival, tribute artist contests, the nightly professional performances and after parties 😀
Day 1…swinging in the sunshine with my Mama

Night one with Cody Slaughter at “Elvis Meets The Beatles”…that man is as close to Elvis as I’ll ever see and every year he has just gotten better and better and he is just so funny and self deprecating even, he’s become my favorite tribute artist for sure
Cody joining The Liverpool Legends on stage for a Beatles song

Day 3…wore my new Elvis print skirt my Mom sewed but unfortunately my back camera decided to die the night before and I didn’t get a photo of my whole ensemble But I got a selfie with Dave Weaver and it also marked the first time I was sung to while eating a hamburger
I was so happy to see Mori Yasamasa again and he even sang “devil in disguise” for me and I danced with him a little and probably turned bright red 😀 ;p

Dock selfies from arrival to leaving:
From my first and second ElvisFest to my now third, Elvisfest LG is always a blast and something I look forward to experiencing every year! The nightly performances were even more incredible than years past that my heart broke a little on the last night knowing I would have to wait another whole year to be there again. But alas, the king in the form of his tribute artists and fans may have left the building but they’ll be coming back.
