First Night is a city-wide celebration that is free and open to the public. The long-running festival features family-friendly activities such as the People’s Procession down Boylston Street, themed ice sculptures, performances from local musicians and artists, and of course, the highly anticipated annual countdown to the New Year, the Copley Countdown, a multi-sensory pyrotechnics and light show.
