Elvis Presley has been immortalised in bronze at Cooke Park.
The legacy of Elvis will now live forever on in Parkes, with Council partnering with the Elvis Revival Inc Committee to commission a statue that is now permanently displayed in Cooke Park.
The statue is dedicated to the hard working Elvis Festival volunteer committee and will serve as a lasting legacy and recognition of the wonderful work of those committee members and volunteers who have made the Parkes Elvis Festival what is today.
The Elvis statue is designed to tie in with the theme of the existing public art, with sculptor Terrance Plowright commissioned to construct the work of art – the same artist who sculpted the Henry Parkes monument located in the town square.
The statue was unveiled by NSW Governor David Hurley at the 2018 Festival.
Make sure you get your photo with the statue when at Parkes Elvis Festival.
