Boston Things to Do New Year's Weekend


As 2011 fades and 2012 rolls in, Boston city residents will find ample things to do and experience throughout the city. If you are looking for a way to spend your New Years Eve or even New Years Day, the city offers a range of fun and interesting events worth exploring. It is up to you to choose the event that is going to provide you with the most enjoyment.

First Night Boston

The biggest celebration in the area is First Night Boston. It is the 36th year that the event will take place. This event offers visitors a cultural experience that includes more than just fireworks and drinking. You will get to see international short files, participate in tap dancing, experience anime and many other elements.

FedEx Family Festival

Another fun way to spend the day and evening if you are with kids is the FedEx Family Festival. It will take place throughout the day at the Hynes Convention Center. The Grand Procession will leave from the convention center at 5:30. There are fireworks outdoors at midnight of course, right over the harbor.

What About on the 1st?

On Sunday, you will find even more fun things to do and see. The Seafarer's Island Holiday is one of the best options. Get on board and take a voyage to Spectacle Island. You can also take in a show at Club Passim where an '80's Hangover event is taking place with tribute bands to Cyndi Lauper, Journey, Madonna and others.
