First Night Boston
First Night Boston, the original citywide festival of art and culture, is the country’s oldest and largest New Year’s Eve celebration. On Monday, December 31, 2012 from noon to midnight, First Night presents its 37th annual day-long festival of art, music, dance, ice sculpture, and more. First Night welcomes children, families and revelers of all ages to celebrate community through the arts. All First Night outdoor events are free, though supported by sales of the First Night button, which is the ticket for admission to indoor events. Buttons are $18 (children under 4 admitted free) and will be available at dozens of locations, including Shaw’s Tedeschi’s, and Au Bon Pain. Buttons are available now at a special web price of $15 only at www.firstnight.org through Dec. 23. For more information, call 617-542-1399 or visit www.firstnight.org.
