Molly wished to watch fireworks with the princesses, but due to her health, she was unable to travel to Disney World. In coordination with the City of Hannibal, Make-A-Wish Missouri will be able to grant Molly’s wish by bringing the fireworks to her.
Molly will view the fireworks display from Mark Twain Brewing Company (422 North Main Street, Hannibal, MO 63401). Molly and her family are being transported to Mark Twain Brewing Company by the Hannibal Fire Department and are set to arrive at 4:30p.m. Supporters are asked to gather outside the Mark Twain Brewing Company to greet Molly as she arrives. Signs wishing Molly a happy wish day are welcome and the first 150 people will receive tiaras to set the scene for Molly’s royal entrance. Molly will be wearing a princess dress donated by Signature Bridal. Miss Hannibal (Scarlett McMullen), Miss New London (Kennady Shuck), Miss Marion County (Destiny Reed), Princess Edie White, and Pre-Junior Miss Marion County (Madison Cardwell and Abigail Hudson) will be in attendance and the City of Hannibal will be presenting Molly with a crown and sash, generously donated by Sally White of Palmyra, Missouri. Mayor Hark will be in attendance to declare Molly the Official Princess of the Kingdom of Hannibal.
Supporters can see the fireworks display from the beer garden outside the front entrance of Mark Twain Brewery or from the Hurricane Deck (balcony overlooking the Beer Garden and Lovers Leap). Molly, her family, and a few close friends will watch fireworks from inside the second floor.
