First Night Portsmouth - Expired Event

December 31, 2017 - December 31, 2017 - CONFIRMED!

From First Night Portsmouth Website:

First Night revives the ancient traditions of marking the passage of time in a present day context. It was created by a group of civic-minded artists in Boston as a meaningful alternative to traditional New Year's Eve revelry. Offered to the city as a finale to its Bicentennial events in 1976, First Night Boston also began a new tradition, bringing neighboring communities together through a joint celebration.

Framed as a family-friendly event, First Night is known as the alcohol free, alternative community celebration on December 31st.

Portsmouth became a First Night community in 1986. We continue to celebrate First Night with music, dance, fireworks and ice sculpture.

By purchasing the First Night Button, you support Pro Portsmouth's efforts to keep this tradition alive and thriving on the Seacoast!
