86th Annual 4th of July Ancients & Horribles Parade
Here’s your 4th of July plan. Sleep late, skip that overrated 227th Annual Bristol Civic, Military, and Fireman’s Parade, and head to Glocester for the 86th Annual AncientS & Horribles Parade, which is highlighted by a slew of devilishly inspired (and sometimes delightfully insipid) floats commemorating the foibles of local and national newsmakers (plus the usual array of waving dignitaries, beauty queens, and cute kids). It kicks off at 4 pm on Main Street. Seriously, it’s worth sitting in the two-lane traffic and the hike down Main Street to join the throng. Hit glocesterri.org for more info.
