Happy (almost) 4th of July!

Posted by Library Blog on 06/23/2017 at 11:56 AM

Did you know that every year the Bristol 4th of July Committee finds the individual who is a previous Bristol resident and has traveled the longest distance to return for the 4th of July celebration?  The winner is presented with a United States Flag that flew over the Capitol in Washington, D.C.! While some members of our RWU Law Community are native Bristolians, many of us (including the entire library staff) are not. If you are from Bristol, then you grew up with the annual 4th of July celebration. If you are from away, the annual celebration becomes your new tradition. This year’s celebration will be no exception…it will be a massive event!

American Flag with Sparkler by Stephanie McCabeStarting on June 20th, a concert is scheduled every night. Some highlights of this series are Buddy Jewell, the very first winner of the USA Network’s Country Music reality TV show Nashville Star, and Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame inductee Steve Smith and the Nakeds.

This year, to continue tradition, the Navy Ship USS Farragut will participate in Bristol’s 232nd  4th of July Celebration and the town will be host to the 28th 4th of July Drum and Bugle Corps Competition. There will also be a carnival, a half marathon, a golf tournament, a raffle, fireworks, and a ball! However, the highlight of the festivities is, of course, the parade. For the most updated information, check out this Facebook page

Enjoy your 4th of July celebration, in Bristol or elsewhere! Be safe, be responsible, and have a blast!
