Forbes’ first ever Amazing Elvis Breakfast held on Saturday marks a series of very successful firsts for the event.
There was a fantastic Elvis buzz around Forbes when around 300 people attended and enjoyed breakfast at the very long red checked tables in Templar Street. While indulging in Elvis pancakes, rocking rolls and coffee, visitors and locals also enjoyed listening to Elvis artist Anthony Pertrucci from Melbourne.
There was plenty of praise for Anthony who was later announced the 2018 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist at the Parkes Elvis Festival.
Anthony said the Amazing Elvis Breakfast in Forbes was a fantastic experience and he loved singing and performing live.
Anthony will now go on to Memphis in August to compete at the next level of the competition during the Elvis Week.
As well as live entertainment and impromptu dancing in the street, there was a quiz, sharing fun details and facts about Forbes and Elvis.
Mayor Graeme Miller said the breakfast was highly successful and it was a privilege to welcome so many visitors to our town to enjoy the breakfast and shopping event. “Forbes Shire Council staff are to be congratulated for organising the morning.
Thank you also to the many local businesses who supported the event,” said Graeme. “I can’t wait to see what we have next year. It will only be bigger and better,” he added.
Following the breakfast, a shuttle bus transported visitors to the Elvis Festival.
