Neewollah Festival 2010 — Independence, KS


I’ve been meaning to post about my recent research trip to Independence, KS during the Neewollah Festival. Alfie Thompson graciously allowed me to stay with her family and took me to the Grand Parade. We had a wonderful time!

I wanted to share some of the photos I took.

Queen Neelah’s float.


I thought these horses and stage coach were a true highlight of the parade.

Pictured below are Judy & Lance Stanislaus, owners of Uncle Jack’s Bar & Grill in Independence. They were kind enough to feed us a wonderful and delicious breakfast the morning of the Grand Parade.


Uncle Jack’s is a special place. Even the Ladies’ Room offers something unique by way of door handles 🙂


Another highlight of my day was stopping by Bette & Phil’s Hallmark store. It was fun meeting everyone there!

I had such a great time in Kansas — I can’t wait for my next visit!
