Im from east Tupelo and grew up a block from Elvis's (birthplace) Tupelo has made so many wrong decisions on the fairground . ie. They should have left up part of the stage and bleachers. kept the main entrance arch. and sold the remainder of bricks as mementos .
also when Elvis donated money for a park in east Tupelo,the city used the money to build a large swimming pool on green street and a wading pool for Elvis Presley Park. They misspent his donation.
The pool that was supposed to be built was an guitar shaped pool and the picture of the pool was on the Daily Journal Front Page.
