First Night is Boston’s annual outdoor New Year’s celebration, and it’s been attracting crowds since kicking off in 1975. Be sure to head out to gatherings in Copley Square and Back Bay to catch an array of attractions including live musical performances, mind-boggling ice sculptures, and interactive light displays. The festivities will get going around 6pm with a People’s Procession through downtown, and then a Family Fireworks show at 7pm. Following the pyrotechnics, tunes and dancing will keep the party going until the midnight countdown.
