Parkes Elvis Festival turned 25 in 2017. From its humble beginnings in 1993, hardwork and dedication of volunteers and staff has seen Parkes Elvis Festival establish itself as a ‘must-do’ event on the Australian calendar.
‘The Wonder of You’ will tell the story of Parkes Elvis Festival by the people who helped shape and create the event into the phenomenon it is today.
Parkes Elvis Festival founders, Bob & Anne Steel, will begin the story of how the idea of such an event started, with additional commentary throughout the film from Parkes Shire Mayor Cr Ken Keith OAM, former Parkes Champion Post editor Roel Ten Cate, Festival Ambassador Al “Alvis” Gersbach, local identity Elvis Lennox, Elvis fan and original yellow Wiggle Greg Page, plus volunteers, fans and staff.
‘The Wonder of You’ Celebrating 25 years of Parkes Elvis Festival will be available for purchase at the Festival.
