The signature event of the Christmas season here in Bristol is the Grand Illumination, and you and your family won’t want to miss the fun.

This year, the Grand Illumination is being combined with the Bristol Fire Department Ladies AuxiliaryKickoff to Christmas Community Aid Drive.

Beginning at 5:00 PM, choruses from our public schools and dancers from Extensions School of Dancewill perform for us. Just before 6:00 PM, the man in red joins us from the North Pole.

Assisted by with Bristol’s Miss and Little Miss Fourth of July 2019, Santa Claus will flip the switch that lights our Town Christmas tree and the iconic Bristol Snowflake.

Want to really get into the Christmas spirit? The Ladies Auxiliary will be collecting new unwrapped toys, new pajamas, non-perishable food items, new or gently used winter apparel, gift cards, and monetary donations to benefit needy families in the area. Please consider bringing one or more of these items to the Grand Illumination or making a cash donation to this very worthy cause.

What a way to start the Christmas season! Don your Santa hat and come along!
