IMAG0206_edited-1Tomorrow is the 59th anniversary of Elvis Presleys first ever Las Vegas performance at the former International Hotel now called the Westgate so it seems fitting to pick tomorrow for a red carpet event and, a ribbon cutting of an Elvis themed attraction at the property. The new attraction called Elvis: The Exhibition showcases artifacts from the King’s live with a special emphasis on Las Vegas related items such as his lavish costumes from his Las Vegas stage shows. The red carpet event also marks the debut of ‘The Elvis Experience’ production show with Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie Presley both due to appear at the ribbon cutting and event tomorrow. When the former Las Vegas Hilton which briefly was the LVH was taken over by Westgate a timeshare company many were worried that the property would be just that a place for timeshare owners not the regular visitor to Las Vegas who wouldn’t have a reason to visit the property; Fortunately for the visitor to Las Vegas the new owners of the now Westgate have upgraded the property without changing the historic nature of the property and in fact by drawing on the history that Elvis has had with the building they have enhanced the experience and givien a reason for the Las Vegas tourist to take a monorail or cab over to the property from the Strip to check it out.
