New Year's Eve Ice Sculpture Stroll

Boston Harbor Now's signature Waterfront Ice Sculpture Stroll is back! Get ready to count down to 2022 with over TWO DOZEN ice sculptures (a new record!) hosted by businesses and cultural sites across the waterfront.

Join the Boston Fire Museum, Boston Pilots, Massport Fire Rescue, Mass State Police and US Coast Guard for a Touch-A-Truck experience from 12pm - 4pm outside the Envoy Hotel. 

Don your winter boots and start strolling during this FREE, fun, and safe waterfront excursion. A lineup of over two dozen unique ice sculptures will be on display from 1:00pm – dusk on December 31, 2021.

Ice sculptures are located close to transit stations across all major subway lines.  Visit Courthouse (Silver Line), Aquarium (Blue Line), Maverick (Blue Line), Haymarket (Green / Orange Lines) or South Station (Red Line) for a short walk to ice sculptures and the Boston Harborwalk.

Since 1975, Boston’s First Night has been a New Year’s Eve celebration of artistic performances, the wonders of the season, and the beginning of a new year. In keeping with this fantastic Boston tradition, the First Night celebration will open 2022 with an array of performances. Bundle up. All indoor programming directly maintained by First Night has been moved outdoors this year. Per the City’s indoor masking mandate, masks will be required for indoor concerts at partner churches, and are recommended when in large crowds outdoors. It is also strongly recommended that attendees are vaccinated.  

Performances start Friday, December 31, 2021 at noon. View full schedule.

The Whittier St. Health Center will run a mobile vaccination and booster clinic from 12:00pm - 7:00pm. on Copley Square (near the Bostix booth) and will be open to all members of the public who are eligible, including children. Following that, BPHC will be providing vaccinations and boosters from 7:00pm  -11:00pm in the Boston Public Library for people ages 12+. 

First Night will include a family fireworks show at the Boston Common at 7:00 pm. 

FOCCP Brings Midnight New Year's Eve Fireworks to Boston Harbor!

The Friends of Christopher Columbus Park led the effort to bring back the nearly 40-year tradition of Midnight New Year's Eve fireworks to the Boston Harbor, which is possible because of the generous support from local businesses, waterfront organizations, and the City of Boston. Public viewing is free and available along the Harborwalk at Fan Pier, Christopher Columbus Park, and the East Boston waterfront.

A lineup of more than a dozen unique ice sculptures will be on display from 1:00pm – dusk on December 31, 2021. Keep your eyes open for a whimsical "Snow Ball Fight" on the Harborwalk along Columbus Park.
