First Night First Day 2017


First Night First Day 2017 is a highly anticipated two-day, city-wide celebration that is free and open to the public. The long running festival features family-friendly activities including:

- A parade down Boylston Street
- A spectacular pyrotechnics show
- Maritime legend inspired ice sculptures,
- Performances from local artists/musicians
- The Boston Public Library’s new “400 Years of Shakespeare” exhibit
- The “Copley Countdown”, a highly anticipated annual countdown to the New Year

First Night is a 501(c)(3) non-profit event, made possible by the generous donations provided by individuals and corporate sponsors. This year we are looking to the public to help bring the celebration to life.
