Said to be the oldest and largest New Year's Eve celebration in the country, First Night Boston features performances and entertainment at more than 40 indoor and outdoor venues throughout the city. Highlights include ice sculptures, glittering fireworks displays, a Family Festival and the First Night Grand Procession, as well as a variety of theatre, dance, music, film and storytelling. Of course, First Night is also a big party! Boston becomes a kind of friendly winter wonderland with fireworks, street parties, live music and performance art.
