Bristol's claim to fame is they have the longest continuous running 4th of July celebration in the USA starting c 1777. Bristol is a peninsula and has about 22,000 permanent residence. It is a typical, small seaport town and fun place to visit.

Yes, off of Thames Street, but it is paid parking. Most other spots you have to have a tag for parking on certain streets, but we have many public parking spots available. On our 4th of July no parking on the parade route.
