Boston’s First Night 2015

In the late 70’s, several women from Boston were looking for an alternative to the traditional way of bringing in the new year. They conceived the idea of having a family-friendly celebration of the arts around the city. This is how Boston’s First Night tradition started and, today, it is one of the city’s premier events and imitated by hundreds of other cities across the country. It’s a full day of indoor and outdoor concerts, ice sculptures, a grand parade and fireworks, both at midnight and an evening display for children. I spent much of the day and evening around Boston Common and Copley Square taking in the sights, enjoying the people….and trying to keep warm. Happy 2015!!
