Officials in Lake George [New York] announced this year's 2005 Elvis Festival will be held June 17 through June 19.
Organizers said they made the move from October because of lousy weather for last year's event. The success of last year's Elvis Festival drew thousands to the small village -- some coming from as far away as Australia.
Elvis impersonator Terry Collins said, "Lake George is perfect for this, my hometown. I know they host a lot of other events during the year. This will be a really nice thing to have here in Lake George. The biggest one we usually go to is in Canada, and it draws 70 to 100,000 people. By two or three years, I think we'll hit that mark here."
Organizers hope to attract an even bigger turnout this year with the June date.
