The City of Bristol, Tennessee is ready to kick off the summer season with an event that the whole family will enjoy. Bristol’s Biggest Block Party will take place on Thursday, June 1st beginning at 5:00 PM at the Downtown Center, and there is no cost for admission.
The block party coincides with the opening night of the Full Moon Jam summer concert series, now in its 21st year. Live music will be provided by local favorites Southern 76, who will take the stage at 5:00 with their signature blend of country and classic southern rock. Then, at 7:00, Entice will heat up with stage with a blend of hits from yesterday and today that will have the crowd dancing in the street.
While the adults enjoy the music, the kids will have plenty of fun activities as well, with inflatables to bounce in, clowns, balloon animals, bubble tables, face painting, sidewalk chalk, and hula hoop contests. All this fun is certain to stir up a few appetites, and fortunately, there will be plenty of options available on site from Food Truck Junction, featuring delicious fare from Caribbean Grill, Catering-4u, and Smokin’ Pete’s BBQ, plus some cold treats to beat the heat from Kona Ice and Jolly Wally Ice Cream. As an added bonus, a limited number of hot dogs will be available to the first few hundred guests in attendance.
Last, but certainly not least, once the sun goes down, the party will literally go out with a bang as the first fireworks of the season light up the night sky just after 9:00. All this, plus a few very special surprises, can be found at Bristol’s Biggest Block Party on Thursday, June 1st, starting at 5:00 PM at the Downtown Center, 810 State Street, Bristol, TN. This event is made possible by 98.5 WTFM, the Bristol Herald Courier, and Food City.
Motorists should be aware that this block of State Street will be closed to thru traffic on this day for stage setup. For more information about the event, please contact Terrie Talbert, Community Relations Director, at 423-764-4171 or [email protected]
