Every year the Bristol 4th of July committee organizes a celebration of the birth of our nation. The committee starts meeting in January and is staffed by a dedicated bunch of volunteers who work to ensure that everybody has a good time.
July 4th starts out with a 5K run. Promptly at 9 am is the Outhouse Races which will celebrate its 33rd running in 2013. Consisting of 4 heats of 4 ‘outhouses’, the winner from each heat competes in a final race to be declared the Grand Champions.
The parade starts at 10:30 and has been known to run 1 and 1/2 hours long and is the oldest continually held parade in all of Vermont. Starting at noon on the green are vendors and activities for all ages including great music in the gazebo.
