Wagga fans head to Parkes Elvis Festival for a rocking weekend

In the Tyler household – the power of Elvis Presley rocks on. 

Wagga’s Karen Tyler is one of Elvis’ biggest fans, naming her dog Presley after the King himself. 

Now the family is headed to the Parkes Elvis Festival to dance the night away along with hundreds from across the country. 

“The music is just so timeless – we started going up for a day and then it turned into overnight and two nights,” she said. 

“We are really looking forward to it and wouldn’t miss it, it’s a ritual now.” 

Mrs Tyler said she had been joking about renewing her vows with her husband at the festival’s famous Renewal of Vows ceremony.

“We quite often say we’ll do it for a bit of a joke,” she said. 

“The wording of the vows can be quite hilarious.”
