The “Elvi” are coming to get Lawrence all shook up for the King.

The first ever Downtown Lawrence Elvis Extravaganza! kicks off with a parade at 10:30 a.m. Aug. 11, beginning at Seventh and New Hampshire streets and ending in South Park. Following the parade, an Elvis Sing-Off will begin in South Park. Contestants must pre-register, and send name, age, email address, phone number and three Elvis songs in order of preference you’d like to sing karaoke-style to

Only 12 contestants will be chosen, and organizers encourage people who are interested to include details of their Elvis fandom.

All Elvi, even non-performers, are invited to walk in the parade. Check, or call 842-3883 for more details.

Following the Elvis event, the annual Rev It Up Car Show will begin in South Park.
