From leading the Elvis Festival Street Parade to opening our doors at our Open Day, we are enthusiastic and active event hosts and participants in the Parkes and Forbes communities.
Northparkes are long-time supporters of the Parkes Elvis Festival. It is a great way to showcase the creativity and passion of employees and the region.
The Parkes Elvis Festival is one of the many events Northparkes are involved with and reflects the great community spirit in the region, making it a great place to live and work.
Each year, our employee pipeline, which is made up of graduates, apprentices, scholarship holders and vacation students, are given the opportunity to get involved by designing and building the Northparkes float, for the festival’s Northparkes sponsored street parade.
The parade is a major highlight of the Parkes Elvis Festival. Elvis-themed floats, vintage and classic cars and motorbikes, led by Northparkes, travel down the main street of Parkes in front of thousands of Elvis fans. Our employees and their families are invited dress up and jump on board our float to join in on all the fun.
