Today is the last day of the Santa-Cali-Gon Festival in downtown Independence, celebrating the three major trails heading west: the Santa Fe, California and Oregon.
Enjoy fried dill pickles, brisket, root bear and much much more.
Shop for jewelry, tie die, Native American art, and much much more.
Cool off with some shaved ice.
Funnel cakes are sold on every corner.
Have some melt in you mouth cotton candy.
Take time to watch the performances. The Cowtown Cloggers will keep your hands clapping and toes tapping.
See Independence’s first fire engines—Santa’s sleigh never shined so bright.
