Elvis will be in the building — the Newton YMCA building, that is — during a performance Saturday night

The Newton YMCA and Alliant Energy will be hosting a free show featuring Elvis tribute artist Ron Semler. The show begins at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The show will feature Semler performing 90 minutes of Elvis Presley’s most popular hits. Semler, who resides in Baxter, has traveled the nation performing his one-man show “Nearly Elvis.”

“This is a fun, family-friendly event we have planned for Saturday,” said Jessica Lowe, Newton YMCA membership and marketing director. “We are excited to partner with Alliant Energy to provide something unique for families to enjoy together.”

Admission is free, and seats are available on a first come, first served basis. The first 50 attendees will receive a pair of The King’s signature shades.
