The Chrysanthemum (Mum) Parade was started 56 years ago. It is one of the State’s largest parades, featuring Bristol and surrounding area businesses, organizations, marching bands and units, and over 40 wonderful floats. The parade has been produced by the Greater Bristol Exchange Club for over 50 years. The Parade sponsor is the City of Bristol. Come join the fun and excitement!

The Parade formerly traveled to the end of West Street and turned left onto South Street and then left onto Mellen Street, but will now turn left onto East St and come back down the Boulevard (Westbound Lane)! It allows the larger Marching Bands and vehicles a better turn radius. It also allows for expansion of the Festival, and safer pedestrian crossing.
