Ger­man town shows off Elvis lights

The Herald (Rock Hill) - - Stay Connected -

The cen­tral Ger­man town where Elvis Pres­ley was sta­tioned as a U.S. sol­dier in the 1950s has in­stalled three pedes­trian lights with im­ages of the Amer­i­can rock icon.

The red shows an im­age of the singer strik­ing a pose at a mi­cro­phone, and the green de­picts his trade­marked hip swivel dance.

They went on­line this week in the town of Fried­berg, where Elvis, who died in 1977, was sta­tioned at the U.S. Army’s Ray Bar­racks from Oc­to­ber 1958 to March 1960. He lived in nearby Bad Nauheim.

Fried­berg, north of Frank­furt, al­ready had an “Elvis Pres­ley Platz” – Elvis Pres­ley Square – and in­stalled the three lights as an added at­trac­tion for Elvis fans who make pil­grim­ages to the town.
