The King would’ve turned 77 this Sunday, Jan. 8. That’s the day sign-ups begin for the annual Elvis look-alike contests at El Ranchito.
This year, there are two contests: at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 11 and 18. It costs $5 to enter the contests, and there is a $3 cover to watch the performances. One overall winner will receive a $500 prize.
El Ranchito started celebrating Elvis’s birthday in 2003. General manager Juan Sanchez is an Elvis impersonator, who started doing Elvis impressions when he was 14.
