Elvis tribute
Porthcawl all shook up
Once again the coastal resort of Porthcawl was packed with Elvis tribute artists and fans last weekend. 
Billed as the biggest gathering of Elvis tribute artists, Porthcawl's reputation has grown year by year in staging this festival. Thousands packed into the town with many entering fully into the spirit of this annual event by dressing in a variety of Elvis-related costumes. 

You could have raised a battalion from all the USA military uniforms that were 
on display, quite a few of them worn by females. One Elvis fan told me that 
15 coaches were chartered from Aberdare alone and at least one coach came
from Resolven to enjoy the proceedings. On the Sunday, the sun shone even
more strongly as people flocked into the streets and pubs and strolled along 
the promenade and beach. Your reporter had a nostalgic time visiting Coney 
Beach fair as well, where many a childhood outing was enjoyed. Porthcawl was
once again 'All Shook Up' in its devotion to The King .... and what fun 
it all was.
