Bristol Borough residents came out last Friday to celebrate July’s First Friday despite some overcast skies. The monthly summer festival featured Santa Claus, a life-sized snow globe, and Sprinkles the Elf.

Residents collected at 7:45 for the highly anticipated Shirt Shooter. WBCB volunteered to supply shirts for the event, and lucky attendees grabbed SEPTA and Bull Session t-shirts.

Food trucks and stands supplied tasty snacks and dinner, while other eateries including Itri Wood Fired. The local pizzeria set up a pop-up bar in the Center For the Arts to entice people to see the artwork with local beers and spirits.

Nothing But a Nightmare returned to the stage to perform live music. The rock band features talented Neshaminy High School musicians, who played the whole time.

Next month’s First Friday is scheduled for Aug. 2.
