Pair of parades, pets included, mark Elvis Fest.
 


TUPELO - Clear skies and warm weather proved to be ideal conditions for the Tupelo Elvis Presley Festival Parade Saturday morning.

The third annual event began at Church Street School and ended on Main Street in front of the Fairpark complex. The event's organizer, Neal McCoy, said the parade was well-attended.

"We are very happy with this year's parade," McCoy said. "We had approximately 25 entries and there was a good crowd on Main Street. All of the Elvis impersonators rode in the parade in different classic cars and we had several floats and marchers. We are pleased with the turnout."

Also on Saturday, the seventh annual pet parade barked its way along North Spring Street.

"We look forward to this event every year," said Angie Taylor with the Tupelo Main Street Association. "The
parade is sponsored by Sunshine Mills and the proceeds go to the Tupelo-Lee Humane Society. The humane society does a great job, and Pet parade winners
