Elvis fans, there's something to get you "All Shook Up" on the lower level of the Expo Building at the Tulsa State Fair.

It's a major exhibit of Elvis memorabilia belonging to Oklahoma collectors. The centerpiece is Elvis, lovingly sculpted in a thousand pounds of butter. A New York artist flew in last Thursday and worked about a hundred hours to spread his image into being, complete with gold glitter and jewels.

Oklahoma Elvis collectors competed for a trip to Graceland. The winning entry was a rare 1968 Elvis Sun Record.
