You have a scant few days left to enjoy Elvis Week, so we recommend taking care of business with a full-on Elvis binge.

If you're reading this on Wednesday, you haven't missed the Candlelight Vigil — the annual procession up the driveway to Graceland for a viewing of Elvis' gravesite. This one truly is a must-see and features a great mix of diehard fans and gawkers. Gates open at 8:30 p.m.

On Thursday, it's the 35th Anniversary Concert at FedExForum at 8 p.m. A collection of the singer's most revered band members — Joe Guercio, J.D. Sumner, the Sweet Inspirations, among them — will appear alongside film footage of Elvis in concert. For a less reverent approach, it's the Dead Elvis Fun-raiser at Kudzu's at 8 p.m. with entertainment by Nancy Apple's Pickin' Party. Guests are encouraged to dress up for the occasion.

Lisa Marie Presley will be at the "Conversations on Elvis: Behind the Stage" event on Friday, 1:30 p.m., at Graceland. Other guests include Elvis' bodyguard Sam Thompson and Dick Grob, the singer's chief of security. The topic of discussion is what it was like behind the scenes with Elvis on tour.

Finally, a finale — Saturday's Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest grand finale at the Cannon Center, 7 p.m. Prepared to be amazed, folks. These performers are the cream of the crop.
