September 17, 2014

Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion is proud to announce a weekend-long Kid's Zone at Cumberland Square Park during the festival with pony rides, clowns, face painting and more. Festival wristband required for entry, some fees may apply.

There are also two additions to their BVU Children's Day: the Wells Fargo Stagecoach and Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures Dental Van.

BVU Children's Day will be held Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. — 2:00 p.m. in Cumberland Square Park and is free to the public.

The Wells Fargo six-horse stagecoach comes from Wells Fargo's real history of using, owning, guarding, and operating them. They still own and display 10 originals in their history museums, 13 authentic reproductions on display in their buildings, and a fleet of 17 that roll almost every weekend in parades across the nation. The Wells Fargo Stagecoach is a symbol of the company's image, heritage, and values. The legendary stagecoach is priceless, and Wells Fargo strives to present it to their communities.

The Junior League of Bristol TN/VA will also bring the Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures (BSBF) Dental Van to Children's Day to provide free children's dental health education and prevention.

Children up to 12 years old will enjoy this fun and engaging program aimed at empowering children to take control of their dental health and disease prevention.
