A wonderful specimen of the gathered Elvii!!

The small central west town of Parkes holds an annual Elvis Festival each year on or around the kings birthday. This year would have been his 70th. The Parkes population swells from 10,000 to this year 25,500! This is the largest Elvis gathering in the Southern hemisphere. A superb weeks entertainment for all the family.

I was fortunate to be media accredited for the Country Link Calendar & enjoyed taking many images, some of which I’ll share here :)
