Each year, Elvis Presley super fans and impersonators from around the world congregate in a single place to celebrate the King in a big way.
The Festival, which takes place in Collingwood, Canada, is the largest Elvis festival in the world. All things Elvis-themed take over the streets in the form of parades, carnivals, weddings and even midnight performances at the local McDonald’s.

The annual Collingwood Elvis Festival launched in 1995. Then, only 35 tribute artists performed compared to this year's 120.
Many charity events take place during the Festival, where fans can donate to causes such as the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and Goodwill.
This contest is one of the fest's main events, and tickets go for between $20 to $50 each. Here, participants get ready backstage.
