In the news

The Michigan Elvisfest as it's currently known may have taken its final bow. The future of the annual festival in Riverside Park is in question after the corporation that oversaw its finances recently opted to stop funding the event. But that group, the non-profit Depot Town Community Development Corporation, is keeping approximately $44,000 that was in the Elvisfest’s bank account.
