Poll: What Time Do You Hit The Streets?

The parade is a little more than 24 hours away ... what time do you claim your viewing spot?

The 247th Bristol Fourth of July Parade kicks off at 10:30 Wednesday morning. But with the thousands of visitors expected in Bristol — and with roads closing at 8:30 a.m. — it pays to show up early.

No one is allowed to set up shop before 5 a.m. — and overnight camping along the parade route is prohibited. But some will surely be standing there waiting before the sun even rises.

So what time do you plan to hit the streets for the show tomorrow morning? Are you an early riser to ensure you get your favorite spot, or will you sleep in and take your chances? Vote in the poll below, and share your plans for a perfect parade day in the comments section.

Years ago, my husband would set up our chairs about 3am, come home, then go back around 6. We would meet him there around 10. Now we stay home and watch it on tv.
