All aboard the Blue Suede Express

Every year, on the birthday of the King – Elvis Presley – hundreds of hip-swinging rockers converge on Central Station in Sydney to board the Elvis Express train to head out to the Parkes Elvis Festival. 

Making a quick stop at Lithgow train station, patrons on the train were joyful and waving to the crowd who had come to see them. 

The stop at Lithgow also proved crucial as they restocked on champagne. 

Running slightly behind time didn’t seem to worry anyone with plenty of entertainment from Elvis impersonators to keep them occupied for the rest of the journey. 

The festival is run over five days and there approximately 120 individual events you can be involved in.

The program includes the headline Feature Concerts Series, the Elvis Gospel Service, the Renewal of Vows, the Goodsell Machinery Miss Priscilla Dinner, and more.
