First Night Hartford

First Night Hartford

Andy Hart

First Night Hartford rings in the New Year with a bang! The family-friendly alcohol-free celebration takes place on Dec. 31 from 2 to midnight out on the streets—and at more than 30 venues around the city.

Highlights include live musical performances, exhibits, dancing, comedy, horse-drawn wagon rides, ice-skating in Bushnell Park, sing-alongs, storytelling, food concessions and two fireworks displays—at 6 and midnight—over Bushnell Park.

Discounted parking and free shuttle service are available. Purchase tickets/buttons in advance or on the day of the event. For further information call, 860/727-0050 or visit
