Join us Sunday, August 27, for All Aboard for Home Sweet Home!, the 3rd Annual Tour of Bristol and its historic Federal Hill area. In honor of the 100th Anniversary of the United States’ entry into World War I, this year’s tour will focus on Bristol’s involvement in the war. Participants will hear stories about our local soldiers, how women supported the war effort, wartime production in our local industries, life on the homefront, and more. This fully narrated driving tour is presented by the American Clock & Watch Museum, Bristol Historical Society, and Bristol Federal Hill Association.
After the tour, at 5:00 p.m., stay for a free concert on the Federal Hill Green. Bring a chair or blanket, pack a picnic and enjoy this fun, community event. In case of inclement weather, updates for the concert will be posted on www.bristolfederalhill.org.
The tour is conducted in an air conditioned tour bus and will be conducted rain or shine.
