First Night is Boston’s premier public New Year’s celebration. The 11+ hour event annually combines an array of various festivities including: fireworks shows, the Grand Procession parade on Boylston Street, ice sculptures, and outdoor concerts around Downtown Boston. These assorted events attracted over one million attendees last year while avoiding the creation of daunting crowds like in Times Square by spreading out the attractions around town. Looking at all the fun, the only thing to be sure to do is bundle up for the sure-to-be chilly New England winter night.
To keep track of announcements and updates on this year’s celebration, check out the event website here.
