One of the big attractions of the annual Neewollah Celebration is the Parade of the Children. The Children's parade was organized years ago for the enjoyment of the children of Independence and surrounding area. This event has grown to over 1,000 children participating. In recent years, as many as 14 Middle School bands from all over eastern Kansas have marched in the Kiddie Parade, and floats have grown to over 30 strong thanks to the participation of numerous families and organization.
Categories for the parade line-up will include:
- Grades K-2
- Grades 3-5
- Grades 6+
- Costumes on Wheels (Floats)
The Kiddie Parade starts in front of Memorial Hall and disbands in front of the Methodist Church.
Any type of motorized vehicle in the parade is NOT allowed unless it is pulling a float!!
