The Chrysanthemum (Mum) Parade was started 57 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 is funded by the City of Bristol. Come join the fun and excitement!
