ELVIS NOW PERMANENTLY ON THE VEGAS MAP
December 24, 2016  -  VLVEPFC  /  Elvis Express Radio
Elvis fans in Las Vegas got a cool Christmas Eve gift when they awoke to find that Riviera Boulevard had now been officially changed to ELVIS PRESLEY WAY.

The brand new street signs have gone up but rather disappointingly this event took place without any ceremony which is the very least he deserves after what he did to help
change the city into what it is today. So, while there was no fanfare, at least Elvis will have a permanent place on the Las Vegas map.

Back at the start of 2016, EER reported the news that Vegas was going to be renaming a street in Elvis' honour and now it has.

However, official documents sent to us by the Viva Las Vegas EPFC show that the original renaming was to be 'Elvis Presley Boulevard' but was eventually settled on 'Elvis Presley
Way'

Credit is due to Mr David Siegel, owner of Westgate Resorts, who first began the process to get the city to pay a permanent tribute to Elvis back in April 2015.

Sue, president of the Viva Las Vegas, Elvis Presley Fan Club said; "What a great present to Las Vegas, Elvis fans and to the memory of Elvis Presley!"
