Downtown Bristol revitalization efforts resulted in a Virginia Main Street milestone award.
Believe in Bristol was awarded the achievement award for the city's efforts bringing Mumford and Sons Gentlemen of the Road tour last August.
Virginia's Department of Housing and Community Development says because of efforts like that concert there's been a lot of progress in downtown Bristol.
Abingdon, Marion and St. Paul were also recognized for excellence by the Virginia Main Street organization.
