Elvis showdown in Frankfort

Dwight Icenhower’s name echoes that of the man who served as President of the United States for most of the 1950s, and Saturday he won a contest impersonating the man who changed music that same decade. The Orlando performer bested 22 other hopefuls in the Elvis in Frankfort competition Friday and Saturday in the Capitol Plaza Hotel. With his victory, Icenhower secured a place in the annual Images of the King competition during Elvis week, Aug. 10-15, in Memphis. In addition to the competitors, there was a performance by 2009 Images of the King champion Jesse Aaron. Event organizer Kathy Stigers said 235 people turned out to see the competition, which is held the last weekend in February every year at the Capitol Plaza in Frankfort.
