SARASOTA, Fla. -- There were many Elvis Presley sightings in Sarasota this Saturday. The annual Shake, Rattle and Soul Festival boogied down at Robarts Area where the top Elvis impersonators from around the world battled for the grand prize.
Co-Producer of the Elvis Festival, Dwight Icenhower, re-iterates the performances are only impersonations. Icenhower says these performances come from the heart and no one will go on stage saying they are Elvis Presley himself. Icenhower also says first and foremost the performances are done as a tribute to their idol, Elvis Presley.
The grand prize is to be awarded Sunday after the finales.
