Elvis fans from Japan were among those to join Parkes Mayor Ken Keith at Sydney's Central station for the 26th annual Elvis Festival in the New South Wales town of Parkes in Australia on Jan 11, 2018. The fans from japan each wore matching karate suits emblazoned with the letters EP on their backs, celebrating Elvis's practice of martial arts which he often performed on stage. It's that time of year when Sydney's Central railway station turns into a sweaty sea of black sideburn wigs and tight jumpsuits. It's all for the departure of the hundreds of music lovers making their way to the annual Parkes Elvis Festival.This year's festival theme is Elvis's 1968 Comeback Special, with spectators and performers travelling from all over the world to celebrate the life of the music legend.
