It was with great joy that
Elvis 100% acepted the invitation that Lisbon International Fair
extended to us to be present during the second edition of this fair
dedicated to Vintage. A bit of everything happened in this fair,
having a total of around 80 stands, all of them dedicated to things
of "back in the day". Products of all kinds and shapes, related to clothing,
decoration, maqueup, acessories, furniture, collectioning, vehicles of 2, 3
and 4 wheels, a chance of making a hairdo and maqueup 50's style, having
dancing lessons through the aisles of the fair - quite fun! - with the
Swing Station, having a tattoo done, buying any souvenir to your
pleasing, enjoy the gastronomy with flavours of other time and, of course,
listen to lots and lots of music, with the performances by Motorcycle
Rockers, Discovers, Stonebones & Bad Spaguetti and, of
course, the Elvis tribute artist, António Carlos Coimbra! 53,000 visitors strolled through the fair and had the chance of knowing about
us, exchaging views, taking information with them (we have handed out Elvis
stickers and on our TV channel, leaflets and business cards) and some even
were fortunate enough to take one of the around 50 Elvis T-shirts we also
offered on the day António Carlos Coimbra performed. We reencountered old
friends, made new ones and established contacts. Everything was very, very
positive! Our appreciation goes to FIL and all the people involved in this
project that took around 3 months to prepare, in order for everything to run
smoothly and successfuly. You know who you are. God bless you! We leave you
here with some photos taken during this fair, of our stand and of our
Portuguese Elvis performances.
Note: Photos with better quality (and many, many more!)
in our albums on Elvis 100% Facebook page. See the direct links, below.
