Parkes Elvis Festival, 2019: Elvis Express was All Shook Up as it arrived into town | Video, photos, pictures

THERE was singing, dancing and a whole lot of sequins as the Elvis Express arrived into Parkes on Thursday afternoon.

For the second year running, two train loads of fans have arrived into town – the Elvis Express just after 4.30pm and Blue Suede Express just before 6pm.

All up, there were 285 passengers aboard the trains and they headed into town amid fanfare, blaring Elvis music and heritage cars.

Parkes Shire Council mayor Ken Keith, along with town crier Tim Keith, were there to greet the passengers as they exited the train station.

The arrival of the Elvii and Priscillas marked the end to an action packed second day of the festival.

Buskers have lined Clarinda Street, Cooke Parke was a hive of singing, dancing and stalls.
