Dust off your blue suede shoes and preen that pompadour to perfection because there’s a whole lot of rocking competitions at the 2016 Parkes Elvis Festival! Registrations for the Festival’s popular Busking Competition and the McDonald’s Rock’n’Roll Dancing Competition are now open.
For the buskers, there are fantastic cash prizes and trophies on offer with the top three buskers chosen by popular vote. The three busking big shots will then compete for the title of Best Busker. In the Dancing Competition, entrants will be judged on their enthusiasm, attitude, rockin’ moves and costume. There are junior and senior categories so dancers of any age can join in.
If you’re not a dancer or a singer, there are plenty of other ways to get involved in the Festival with the annual Poets’ Breakfast and Elvis Edible Art competitions. More than 120 free and ticketed events, shows, concerts and competitions will feature on the 2016 program which is now available online and in print pocket-guide format.
