Patriotic Party

After being held out of town for far too long, the Fourth of July Ball returned to Bristol with a bang this year. A sell-out crowd donned their finest red, white and blue attire to help raise funds for the Bristol Fourth of July Committee, which plans the town’s month-long patriotic celebration. Revelers enjoyed dinner, dancing and root beer floats under a tent on the picturesque grounds of Blithewold Mansion.
