I'm happy to report that the city will have fireworks as part of its birthday celebration this year after all.
The display will be Sunday, August 15, with a rain date set for Sunday, Aug. 22
Fireworks will be set off from Perkins Street property owned by Jarre and Whit Betts. High on Chippens Hill, the display will be seen for miles.
I wrote about this for Friday's edition of The Bristol Press (www.bristolpress.com), so if you'd like more details, check it out there.
p.s. If you want to see fireworks for the Fourth of July, the closest ones to Bristol are at Lake Compounce.
