Free Things to Do: With 50 free musical performances, movies under the stars and a smattering of dance and drama performances, the Levitt Shell in Overton Park serves as true common ground for residents of Memphis. The historic shell - Elvis once sang here early on in his career, sharing the stage with Johnny Cash (it was not a success for the future King), the shell fell into disrepair and out of favor in the late 1990's, but was saved from demolition by a local group and has since been renamed the Levitt Shell at Overton Park. It reopened in 2008, offering free performances for all.
Local Expert Sally Walker Davies Says:
Free Things to Do: "Blankets and folding lawn chairs are welcome, and all performances are family-friendly. Alcohol is prohibited, but concert-goers often bring elaborate picnic dinners. On-site concessions are also available."
