Boston Looks To Drop First Night Festival

Posted: Jun. 26th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

A serious blow to the festivities of the new year has struck in Boston, now that the First Night Boston nonprofit organization is looking to drop the traditional Copley Square New Years celebration. Citing a lack of funds and bringing great disappointment for what is supposed to be the penultimate day of hope and new beginings, this sad state of affairs is a real downer.

Boston residents and visitors used to celebrating New Year’s Eve in the Copley Square area may have to change their plans for ringing in 2014.

First Night Boston, the nonprofit organization that has been running First Night festivals downtown since 1976, has ceased operations, citing a lack of funds to properly plan the annual affair, the Boston Business Journal reported Friday.

A vote taken by the board of directors to end operations takes effect immediately, and means the organization will stop planning First Night Boston 2014, according to the article.
