“Sunday Stroll” added to Outdoor Festivals in Bristol Borough
From “First Friday” to the newly announced “Sunday Stroll” organizers of the Bristol Borough Business Association announced the new series of events recently.
Organizers invite the community to “the quaint and historic riverfront town” for the mini series of saunters from June through September from 12 pm to 4 pm on Mill Street.
Logistical challenges were cited for the move of the street fair from Friday to Sunday, organizers said.
In March locals voiced concerns about the potential cancellation of the outdoor series of Friday festivals.
Brianna Hitchens, the recently elected President of the BBBA said at the time no decision has been made as of yet about any of the spring and summer events the business association sponsors.
We want to put on the best events possible for the borough, the businesses, and the people who come them, she said.
From the perspective of organizers, the Friday street fair hosted by the merchant district, was simple moved from one day to another.
And the way event is structured, family and friends can spend the day on Mill St enjoying the fair, enjoying any one of the fine eateries and then stroll right over to Bristol Lions Park for the Sunday evening outdoor concert series that begin at 6 pm.
Vendors, artists, and food trucks can apply to take part in the Sunday street festivals by contacting the BBBA for sign up info by E-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The BBBA said it wants to provide an interesting, culturally-rich and family-friendly shopping experience for our visitors and a successful selling experience for our vendors and artists. We intend to accept a varied mix of vendors who sell unique, quality products. Completed Agreements will be submitted to the BBBA Board of Directors for review and approval. Vendors whose services and/or products are in direct competition of a Mill Street business and/or BBBA member may be denied.
The hope of organizers is what really in many ways is a “First” Sunday event, will add to the associations repertoire of event offerings.
Yes First Friday’s was wildly popular with thousands flocking to Mill St for all it had to offer. Just think, though, what a Sunday event like that will offer the community and visitors.
“The possibilities seem to be endless and business friendly,” said one Mill St visitor asked about the Stroll on Friday.
