Now is a great time to start planning your outfits in the theme of Elvis’ 1968 movie Speedway. Think racing cars, chequered flags, overalls, go-go dresses and all the glam of the late 60s era. It’s time to watch Speedway again and get some inspiration.

Don’t stop there… find some time to make an outfit  for your pooch for the Hound Dog competition and show.

It’s a great time to get practicing on your hair and make up for the Goodsell Machinery Miss Priscilla Dinner. You can choose from Miss Priscilla – Face of the Festival, Miss Speedway and hairstyles of the 60’s competitions. Not sure what to do?  We’ve made some tutorial videos with the experts to give you the techniques and tips that you’ll need to create the perfect look.

Are you a poet and didn’t know it?  Curl up in the warm with your favourite beverage and start working on your poem for the Elvis Poetry Competition. Entries won’t open until later in the year so lot’s of time to practice writing a winning poem.

Stay tuned for details on the new Elvis Art Show where you’ll be able to show off your creativity and talent with Elvis inspired artwork!

It’s a great time to catch up online with your friends and share photos, video’s and stories about the fun times you’ve had at the Parkes Elvis Festival.

We’d love to hear about them too! Why not write about your experiences in the Festival blog
