Elvis to be Inducted into Duck Walk Hall of Fame


The Peabody will celebrate more than just its 138th birthday at its annual Anniversary Party this year. The hotel will pay tribute to the "King of Rock 'n Roll" by inducting Elvis Presley into the Duck Walk Hall of Fame.

Priscilla Presley will be the guest of honor at the event, which will take place Thursday, August 16, 4:45 p.m. – 6 p.m. in The Peabody's Grand Lobby.

Belz Enterprises Chairman & CEO Jack Belz will posthumously induct Elvis into the Duck Walk Hall of Fame. Priscilla Presley will accept on behalf of Elvis. The center portion of the Grand Lobby will be cordoned-off for a private, invitation-only party, but the perimeter of the Lobby and Mezzanine will be open to the public.

"The Peabody's Duck Walk Hall of Fame honors those who have played a pivotal role in the development of Memphis. And what better icon of Memphis is there than Elvis Presley? In many ways, he put Memphis on the map," says Douglas V. Browne, general manager of The Peabody Memphis.
