Around 28 years here in RI and I've never been to it either. Just sounds like a lot of WORK to get there early and find a spot. I welcome any new friendships with people who live on the parade route tho.

Oh yeah, they do. I no longer live in Bristol, but I believe they had to get a special permit from the RI DOT, since regulations dictate that there be two solid yellow lines on Hope St.

76, ahh, that was a special year for me. It was the year I graduated from "Bristol High School" (yeah, now Mt. Hope ) So yes, you did see me twice that year. Once as Drum Major of the band, and once playing a bugle in the Valley Airs Drum and Bugle Corps. That was the most attendance of any parade. I believe they estimated the attendance at 2 million, and that is also the first year they extended the parade to its current 3 mile length. Prior to that it was 2 miles, and just went in a big circle starting on High & Franklin St, going left Washington, then left on Hope, and turning left on High ending at the common.

Boy, I went through the whole thread and I didn't see one Newporter (one mention about the Tennis Hall of Fame, but that's it). We were stationed in Newport for one glorious year. One year was not enough. But know that we've lived in Florida, I am completely convinced that I need to summer in Newport and winter in Florida. I now see why it's done. I'm sold! Sign me up!

50-something years here and I have never been to the Bristol parade either. Heck, I just made my first visit to Block Island (for one day) last summer. These things can't be rushed.

Oh, I went to Block Island one time too! Actually, twice! Once before we had kids (that's the time I barfed my way from Galilee to Block Island and spent the rest of the day dreading the trip back), and the 2nd time (because DH actuallly talked me into getting back on that ferry) with oldest DD, who is now almost 20, when she was about a year old. She took her shoes off on the ferry and they got filthy, and I spent a large portion of the day looking for a store to buy a new pair of socks. Never did find one. Block Island is lovely, but I need civilization!

School teacher, and believe me, I don't get to do this because of finances. I teach in a private school. Thanks to smartly buying DVC, and those AP's, along with Southwest usually having some decent fares , I get to scratch the Disney itch . Just leaves eating, and I gotta do that at home too.

.....to Rhode Island? Norton was close by when we lived in Attleboro for a few years. Then we got sucked right backed to RI! It's a unique place, that's for sure.

Heading down to WDW next week with a friend from Creeeaaanstin High School East days. She and I were lucky enough to be at CHSE during the high hair 80's!

We're going just the two of us-no kids, no husbands-just the girls!

Thanks, I've only ever seen one person on here from Barrington, Joan S.

My husband grew up in Barrington, I moved here from Connecticut in tenth grade, and met him in high school. When we got married, we bought a house here and haven't moved yet.

I have been to one 4th of July parade (I think it was in 1984 or 1984, we rode bikes there).

I've been to Block Island twice to visit my sister, who rents a house there for a week every summer. I think we are going to go see her this year for a day or two.
