A wonderful parade packed full of Elvis-themed floats, Elvis and Priscilla look-a-likes, vintage and classic cars, motorcycles, marching bands and much more.

DAY 4. Sunday – Elvis Festival (B,D)

This morning is an early start to get to Parkes in time for the Elvis Gospel Church Service. This event has become a much-loved feature of the festival program and the interdenominational service on Sunday morning pays tribute to Elvis’ first love – gospel music. The rest of the day brings much more outdoor entertainment such as the Elvis winner’s concert, rock ‘n’ roll bands and the mass renewal of wedding vows with Elvis at the Altar.
