September 26, 1956

Elvis drove to Tupelo with his parents, Nick Adams and Barbara Hearn. Elvis had to appear at the Mississippi Alabama Fair And Diary Show. He performed here for the first time at the age of 10. Elvis was wearing a blue velvet shirt, made for him by Natalie Wood's dressmaker. Tammy Wynette, at the age of 14, watched the show from the first row. The show was filmed by Fox Movietone News, but the bad audio made it almost a "silent" movie.
