Event Description: Break out your bobby socks, poodle skirts and hula hoops and get ready to flashback to 1958 as Elvis Presley meets CBS’ Walter Cronkite at the Greenville Downtown Airport. Yes, Elvis will perform – and get us to Shake, Rattle and Roll. Yes, Walter Cronkite from CBS News will get the backstory about Elvis being drafted into the US Army. Yes, there will be 1950’s vintage cars, motorcycles and even a vintage M39Aa Willy’s Jeep like the one Elvis drove in German for his Platoon leader - named HQ 31. There will be 1950’s kids’ games for the whole family. Pin up your ponytail and polish your saddle shoes for a 1950’s Costume Contest with prizes. In a lucky coincidence, both Walter Cronkite and Elvis are in Greenville – Cronkite for the “Chautauqua History Alive Festival” (June 16 – 25) and Elvis for Centre Stage’s production of “Million Dollar Quartet” (July 20 – Aug 12.) And of course, our Downtown Airport will feature aircraft and Runway Park. All events are free, fun and family friendly.
