The largest Elvis festival in the US — as well as the biggest tribute concert — brings thousands of people to Riverside Park for the weekend to watch the best Elvis tribute artists pay homage to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. In honor of ‘The King’ himself, there will be a candlelight vigil on Saturday to commemorate his death. There will also be a car show and a Gospel Hour, featuring all of Elvis’s favorite gospel songs. Naturally, it wouldn’t be a party without cold beer, great food and plenty of Elvis memorabilia and fest gear. Other rock ‘n’ roll legends being paid tribute include Roy Orbison, Paul McCartney and the Blues Brothers. Local charities, Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels and The Hope Clinic will be benefactors of this event. Friday, 4pm-12am; Saturday, 12pm-12am. $15, Friday / $25, Saturday. Riverside Park, 5 W Cross St., Ypsilanti.   734-277-4547. www.mielvisfest.org—DL
