If you’re still looking for Fourth of July plans, we have got you covered. Bristol, Rhode Island hosts a Fourth of July Celebration that has an attendance of over 200,000 people from Rhode Island, as well as all around the world. Bristol began this annual celebration back in 1785, and it has gotten so popular that Bristol is now known as America’s “Most Patriotic Town!” Not to mention, Bristol is so patriotic that it actually has red, white and blue stripes along one of their main streets!
The celebration is organized and put on by 120 outstanding volunteers who are dedicated to not only celebrating the national holiday, but honoring civil servants, military and fire personnel of the Bristol community.
There are a variety of activities that Bristol puts on throughout their Fourth of July celebration. There are several free outdoor concerts that will take place at Independence Park, Orange Crate Derby races, a firefighters’ muster, parade through downtown, and of course, fireworks! Additionally, Bristol has already began their Patriotic Pet Photo Contest as well as their Freedom Raffle! To participate in voting for your favorite pet or to purchase a raffle ticket, you can visit their website.
Bristol’s Fourth of July celebration must be attended by everyone at least once… is 2018 the year you check it off your bucket list?
