Event: Elvis Festival

2012-09-04 15:49
Dates: 21 - 23 September

Since the inception of Africa's first and only Elvis Festival two years ago, Storms River has experienced a retro revival like you wouldn't believe!

The Marilyn's 60's Diner is home to this distinctive music journey ‘The Elvis Festival Africa' every year where you may just find yourself hopelessly lost in the 50's!

This year's theme will be ‘Elvis Meets his Friends', bringing you the likes of Roy Orbison, Diana Ross, Frank Sinatra, Rod Stewart, Grease and a many more 50's and 60's legends to the stage. This festival will rock the drabbest jailhouse and get the dustiest of blue-suede shoes a-dancing.

And you don't need to be an Elvis fan - there's something for laaities and ladies alike. To all those Elvis fanatics, the town brings together Elvis impersonators from all areas to sing, dance and celebrate the era.

So, if your travels are taking you along the Garden Route and up to the Eastern Cape sometime soon, add to your journey a welcome break at the Storms River Village to experience a good and solid blast from the past. The diner is open every day from 10h00 till late, and in summer holidays from 08h00 till late.

Venue: Marilyn's 60's Diner
