America's Most Patriotic Town

Posted by Library Blog on 06/08/2015 at 09:35 AM

Did you know the nickname of Bristol is America's Most Patriotic Town? This nickname probably does not come as a surprise to any of the residents of the town or to the members of the RWU Law community. No one can stop talking about, looking forward to, bragging about, or planning for the culmination of Bristol’s patriotism, the annual 4th of July celebration.

This year will feature several evenings of music including Changes In Latitudes, a Jimmy Buffett tribute show; Simply Diamond, a Neil Diamond tribute show; and Songs in the Attic, a Billy Joel tribute show. 

In addition to the concert series, there is a Drum & Bugle Corps Competition, a fireworks display, and of course, the parade. The Chief Marshall of the parade this year even has a law degree!

Interested in learning more about the history of the celebration? Check out this old episode of the public television show Dead Air Live which features Bristol.  

This summer celebrate your Independence Day safely, responsibly, and perhaps with a new license plate
