2016 Generalissimo

Stacey Yakshaw

From the opening night of the musical "Disney's The Little Mermaid" to the Saturday morning Grand Parade and Saturday evening band stand, come Be Part of Our Neewollah World. Neewollah has something for everyone and however you celebrate the festival, we are happy to have you involved in Neewollah. Our festival is successful because of all the volunteers, sponsors, carnival riders, parade goers, food junkies, queen contestants, 5K & 10K runners, and chili lovers!

I am honored to be your Generalissimo and I hope you enjoy Neewollah this year, and thank you for Being Part of Our World!

A Note from the 2016 Generalissimo

I want to thank everyone for coming to Independence and "Being Part of our World" this week! As I rode through the Grand Parade Saturday, I was in awe at the number of people that were gathered to watch the parade. I know the weather plays a big role in Neewollah and what a great run we had! However, many things helped maintain the integrity of the Neewollah that those before us created for the good of Independence. One thing is the merchants and their understanding, compassion, and respect for the festival, we appreciate your continued support in maintaining the growth and future of the festival. Another integrity builder is the support we receive from our sponsors, we could not have the Neewollah we have without your help. Then there is our over 400 volunteers, our police department and city workers, all of our parade participants, our children and the parents. The list could go on, but I simply want to say Thank You for a memorable year, I had a great time and enjoyed being part of the Neewollah world, I hope you enjoyed the festival and I'll see you downtown next year!
