They do it every August 16th.

This was the 37th time.

Elvis Presley died on this date in 1977 of a heart attack.

Holding candles, fans of Elvis Presley made a slow, walk past his gravesite at the King’s Memphis home.

The grave’s in the garden.

The vigil’s a highlight of Elvis Week, an annual celebration of Presley’s career and life.

This year other events included an auction of authenticated Presley artifacts – among them a 1977 Cadillac Seville – and the groundbreaking of a planned 450-room hotel at Graceland.

His home is now a museum and a centrepiece of the Graceland tourist attraction that draws about 500,000 fans every year from all around the world.
