The big night is here! The ball is about to drop and 2014 is almost here! Are you ready to say goodbye to 2013? There are tons of events going on in Boston to toast the past year and welcome the new one, and if you’re wondering where to go, check out our suggestions:
Crawl ‘Til The Ball Falls Bar Crawl – This 21+ event is sure to be fun for those of you that want to kick off the New Year with friends and a few drinks. There are two spots to register, either at Stadium Sports Bar from 4PM – 8:30PM ($100), or Sissy K’s from 4PM – 7:30PM ($80), very limited amounts of the Sissy K’s tickets are available so make sure to act fast! The bar crawl itself is from 4PM – 2AM and ticket price includes a cup, wristband, map of the route, and admission to all venues.
First Night – Of course this is the event that comes to everyone’s mind when you think of New Year’s Eve in Boston. The first thing to know when it comes to First Night is that getting a button is worth it. All outdoor events are free but the indoor ones are not. For $10 you can purchase a 2014 First Night button that includes admission to every show on a first come, first serve basis. You can purchase buttons at the BosTix Booth located in Faneuil Hall and Copley Square. This day long celebration of art, music, dance, sculpture, fireworks, and of course the New Year will be fun for the whole family, and has something fun to offer that everyone will enjoy.
Frozen Fenway – This family friendly event is the perfect way to spend New Year’s Eve for Red Sox fans! Spend the day inside the park sledding on the 20 foot Monster Sled, go ice skating, enjoy some classic Fenway food, take pictures on the warning track and in the dugouts, and take a picture with the World Series trophies! There will also be free hot chocolate and cookies for children. Celebrate the World Series champs and ring in the New Year with family and friends at Fenway Park! Tickets are $40 and this event is tonight, December 31st from 5 PM – 10 PM.
New Year’s At Laugh Boston – For all of you comedy fans, you won’t want to miss New Year’s Eve at Laugh Boston. Comedian Big Jay Oakerson will take the stage for two shows, one at 7:30 and one at 10 PM and hilarity is sure to ensue. With appearances on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon”, “Just For Laughs Comedy Festival”, and HBO’s “P.Diddy’s Bad Boys of Comedy”, Oakerson is sure to bring lots of laughs to everyone in the audience to kick off the New Year. Tickets for both shows are still available and cost $25.
Staying in tonight? Grab some champagne or sparkling cider (for those that are not 21) and enjoy watching the ball drop!
Whatever you end up doing tonight, we want every to have a fun but more importantly, SAFE New Year’s Eve. This night can be extremely dangerous if you do not party responsibly, so designate a driver and make sure everyone you’re with knows the game plan for the night. Happy Holidays!
