The Elvis Festival is just about to hit Parkes once again. This annual outpouring of love is held in Parkes each January and has become a huge event celebrating The King’s life and his sensational music. Everyone young or old dresses in jumpsuits reminiscent of the King and parades around the town and there is dancing in the streets all weekend long!
Our town swells to double its size during the event and the atmosphere is amazing! Last year I was even lucky enough to be a guest judge for one of the biggest events on the program, The Miss Priscilla Competition. This lucky Priscilla lookalike reigns over the entire weekend as well as winning a bevy of prizes.
But so you all don’t miss out here are some Elvis goodies that will have you in the mood even in your own homes!! Check out the online store to see all the goodies now available.
And as the King would say ” Thank you very much…….”
A few years ago we had the pleasure of home hosting the American Ambassador, Mr Jeffrey Bleich which was extremely exciting and an immense privilige. Mr Bleich is a true Elvis Fan and enjoyed the whole spectacle immensely. Here is a photo of the Ambassador and my husband and I when we returned the favour and had a chance to visit the American Embassy in Canberra this year.
