Parkes Elvis Festival goers celebrate the King's birthday in Cooke Park

Happy birthday Elvis!

A special birthday celebration was held in Cooke Park on Tuesday to celebrate Elvis’ 84th birthday, had he still been alive.

Those who share the King’s birthday on January 8, went into a draw to see who would cut the birthday cake.

There was also entertainment and dancing in the park, all held the day before the Parkes Elvis Festival officially kicks off.
