BRISTOL, R.I. (WPRI) — The Bristol Fourth of July Committee has reached its magic number just in time for the holiday.
The organization announced Thursday that it’s pre-sold the required 900 specialized license plates for them to go into production.
The plates feature a patriotic design with “Home of America’s Oldest Fourth of July Celebration” emblazoned below the license plate number.
According to the committee, those who purchase the plates keep their current license plate numbers and only passenger vehicles qualify.
The plates cost a one-time fee of $41.50, of which $15 goes towards Bristol’s Fourth of July celebration, $5 goes to the Rhode Island Veterans Home, and the rest covers the DMV costs.
They can still be purchased by downloading and mailing in the order form.
The committee said it will be submitting all of the required information to the DMV for review and processing in the coming weeks.
Visit the the Bristol 4th of July Committee’s website for more information.
Several other local charities have designed plates but are still working to reach 900 sold, including the Autism Project, Home and Hospice Care of Rhode Island, Wildlife Rehabilitators, Rhode Island Law Enforcement Memorial Benefit Fund, Emergency Medical Technicians, and the Boston Bruins Foundation.
