History of our Independence Day

Rhode Island for the last six weeks, has had so many sunless day and lots of rain and thunderstorms

It has been very damp and wet with so much rain. I do hope the skies are clear and the sun comes out for our parade in Bristol.

“I cannot believe there has been this much rain in the sky, and it’s all coming down on Rhode Island” 

PLEASE DON'T RAIN ON OUR PARADE!

Fourth of July Parade in Bristol, R.I 

 

Bristol. RI has the oldest Fourth of July parade in the US, which has been holding its Fourth of July Celebration since 1785. The Fourth of July Parade will begin at 10:30 a.m. and will step-off at the corner of Chestnut Street and Hope Street (Rt. 114) and ends on High Street, between State Street and Bradford Street.

Watch the Parade on WLNE/ABC6

WLNE-TV/ABC6 will once again carry the Bristol Fourth of July Parade on Saturday, July 4, 2009. Hosted by WLNE-TV/ABC6’s Allison Alexander, John DeLuca, Paul Mueller and Fred Campagna. WLNE/ABC 6 will telecast the entire parade live to the entire Providence – New Bedford television area. WLNE-TV/ABC6 will produce the Fourth of July Parade in spectacular High Definition.

 

 

fireworks

DID YOU KNOW?

The States that ban all consumer fireworks are (5) Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey.

For those of you in the 39 states that allow fireworks, please be careful. Fireworks are fun but they can definitely be dangerous. 

A few tips on what to do to make sure that you have a great time at your fireworks display show this 4th of July celebration in your state.

  • CHAIRS: Make sure you bring some chairs for the entire family. Most of the time you will find yourself relaxing and looking into the sky as you enjoy the fireworks show.
  • DRINKS: Bring a cooler with drinks for the family. Many times these fireworks shows get extremely full and you are left to park on the side of the road and try to enjoy the show. Just make sure you are ready.
  • TIMING: Make sure you know the time when the fireworks start. The worst thing is missing out on fireworks because you have the time incorrect.
  • CLOTHING: Depending on where you live, pay careful attention to the weather. You want to enjoy this day, so make sure you dress appropriately based on the weather.
