Bristol Is Celebrating With a Fourth of July Carnival
Summer is in the air and the sweet smell of fair food and the shouts from amusement park rides have been lingering in the air. The world is opening back up again, and the public, for the most part, is raring to get out and have a little fun this season.
Just a few weeks after scheduling its parade and fireworks show, the town of Bristol, Rhode Island has announced that the annual carnival is slated to return for the Fourth of July.
The committee for the Bristol Fourth of July Celebration recently announced that there will be more family fun entertainment starting Friday, June 25 until July 5.
Located by the Bristol Town Commons, the carnival will be open weekdays from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., and weekends from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. On July 5, the carnival will only be opened a shorter period of time from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., but hours are all subject to change.
"Bracelet days are June 28, June 29, June 30 and July 1," the carnival committee announced. "Rockwell Amusements will be focusing on sanitizing their rides regularly and we have been getting lots of interest about the carnival so I think it will be a big hit again this year!"
Along with the amusement park rides, there will be food available for purchase with an assortment of local food trucks.
This has been an annual event for the town of Bristol, except for last year due to COVID-19. As the carnival makes it return, the safety and well being of the public is always a priority for the committee, which is looking forward to good times and summertime fun.
