Event Details:

The Chaffee Barbershop Museum hosts its annual celebration of Elvis Presley's March 25, 1958 G.I. haircut. The museum has been restored to its condition in 1958 when thousands of U.S. Army enlistees, including Elvis, received their signature army buzz cut. This '50s-style festival includes an Elvis look-alike contest, poodle skirt and hula-hoop contests and Elvis karaoke. Prizes will be awarded. Auto enthusiasts enjoy displays of vintage military vehicles and automobiles. Face painting, balloon-art displays, festival food and free authentic G.I. buzzcuts in the barbershop make this an event for Elvis fans of all ages to enjoy.
