Bristol marks 225th Fourth of July Parade

Providence, R.I. – Tens of thousands of people lined the streets of Bristol Monday to celebrate the town's 225th Fourth of July parade.

The massive celebration lasted over three hours as marching bands, floats, and members of the armed forces streamed passed the crowds.

Although the parade is usually on the fourth of July, town tradition places it on the fifth when the holiday lands on a Sunday.
