Bristol Parks and Recreation Announcements

Come and enjoy a beautiful evening with Bristol Parks and Recreation Department with this year’s free “Rockin’ Out at Rockwell-Summer Concert Series.” Concerts are held on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-8:30pm until August 16th. Tuesday July 26th we’re getting fired up for the Rockwell Amphitheater to host The Future Heavies! The Future Heavies is a Bristol-based band covering the best in new wave, pop, R&B, dance, and rock from the 1980s. Get ready to be transported back to the ‘80s with music that is sure to get everyone in the dancing mood. We encourage you to bring lawn chairs, blankets, and snacks to enjoy a picnic at the Rockwell Amphitheater to the backdrop of an amazing band. We hope to see your family there!

Thank you to UBI Federal Credit Union and the rest of our community sponsors!
