Here in our TotalBoat World HQ in the seaside town of Bristol, RI we proudly boast the nation’s oldest 4th of July Parade. The parade runs along the harbor (as you can see above) and past rows of historic houses and Nathaniel G Herreshoff’s storied boat manufacturing property, following a red/white and blue stripe down the middle of the road. Our special stripe goes the whole parade route and the streets, moorings and docks are lined with locals and visitors, leaving almost no room for last minute joiners.
We hope you’re celebrating this wonderful holiday weekend with your boat and your friends and family. It’s America’s big party day and boating seems to go hand in hand with a great time and in Bristol, RI with a great Parade.
