Elvis Festival street parade

So we rushed (almost) directly from the World Record attempt to watch the street parade, which was mildly amusing, but difficult to photograph from our position directly opposite the media.

All the floats would turn away and mug for the Daily Telegraph, Sydney Morning Herald etc. while we true Elvis and Elvis impersonator fans were left staring at backs.

Who better to lead the parade than Dean Vegas, with not 1 but 2 Priscillas!

But wait! There’s more! After the parade there was judging back on the main stage for the look-alike contests. Of course I had to go and of course I had to take a million photos!

Even I am starting to tire of all this Elvis action, but I still have to report on Silas and his spectacular “Elvis Forever Young” Show. Phew, later…
