2021 Bristol Progress Days July 9, 10, 11

Bristol Progress Days, the annual community festival held the weekend after the Fourth of July, in Bristol, is back for 2021 and will take place over three days on July 10, 11 and 12.

The theme for this year is “2021-Looking Forward.”

The festivities include the Miss Bristol crowning and the Outstanding Citizens Awards, which are announced on Friday at the coronation banquet. The sports tournaments are always a big hit and the fireworks show and parade draw people from all over the southeastern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois area.

Here’s some of the fun at Bristol Progress Days:
