Saturday, Sept. 24, will be a busy day in Bristol, starting with the annual Harvest Festival and Better L8 Than Never Car Show.
Festivities are scheduled to begin at 10 a.m., when the village green will come alive with 80 plus crafters, vendors, and bandstand entertainment.
The Bristol Downtown Community Partnership will be hosting its Harvest Sidewalk Sale in downtown Bristol on Saturday to coincide with the Harvest Festival.
Attendees will be able to enjoy the “Taste of Bristol” where several of the local eateries will be gathered together under one tent and proudly offering the foods for which they’re best known. There will also be a yard sale by the Bristol Police Department.
The children’s area will offer all sorts of activities including pony rides. There will also be free horse-drawn wagon rides by Pat Palmer of Thornapple Farm.
The event wouldn’t be complete without an apple pie contest, farmers market, the Lawrence Memorial Library’s book sale and live music on the bandstand.
Also on Saturday, beginning at 9 a.m., is the Better L8 Than Never Car Show held at the Bristol Recreation Field. More than 200 vehicles are expected this year. Whether you are showing or just walking the field, the vehicles are amazing.
If you have a vehicle you’d like to show, download an application. Admission for spectators is free (donations are accepted for Camp Ta-Kum-Ta) and vehicle registration is only $15 per vehicle.
