Bristol, RI

You can also go to a seldom heard city of Bristol with your Kelsi mobile medical alert system. Bristol is the city that has hosted a 4th of July parade for the longest. In fact, it started in 1785. That’s 2 years after the US gained its official freedom from the British in the Treaty of Paris (1783).

However, Bristol doesn’t just have tradition as a part of its celebrations. In fact, their celebrations start on June 14th, Flag Day. These festivities include events like baseball games, concerts, and runs. The fireworks are on July 3rd, but luckily the historical parade is on Independence Day.
