Fans of Elvis Presley flocked to Graceland to hold a candlelight vigil in honour of the 43rd anniversary of his death.

“The King” was honoured at his Memphis, Tennessee, estate where hundreds of people left flowers and notes for him.

The estate put the proper precautions in place to ensure the event was safe. For instance, only 720 people gained access to the grounds. The groups, which had to contain six people or less, were not allowed in unless they had face masks. Organizers staggered the entrance times to limit congestion.

Police officers were also on hand to make sure only ticket holders were granted access.

This year marks the first time Elvis has been gone longer than he was alive. Elvis was 42 when he died of a heart attack.

Elvis Week events were held all week and ended Sunday night (the day he died) with a virtual gospel and drive-in movie in the parking lot of Graceland.
