This year’s New Year’s Eve celebrations in Boston are carefully calibrated to be as couch-oriented as possible – and preferably with people only in your bubble coronavirus, authorities say


The Boston First Night tradition will continue, albeit via the live broadcast rather than downtown TK Skenderian of Conventures, the company that runs the nonprofit that hosts New Years Eve. An in Boston over the past five years has been triggered multiple times until the minute various acts begin

“Oh, it’s been hours and hours and hours and weeks,” Skenderian said of consolidating the six-hour stream from a seaport bunker

The stream runs from 6pm to 11pm, warming everyone up for the final countdown to a miserable year.The first night celebrations, which take place in a few downtown areas, are often a great way for local artists to hang out in front

“Every year we receive talent from Boston and beyond,” said Skenderian, saying it always is, with a wide range of musical genres, as well as a figure skating program that will be streamed “We have vibrant artists who sparkle in their community”

The blow-by-blow schedule is in place at the First Night site, and the organizers in particular have shouted out the Boston Gay Men’s Chorus, local high school pop singer Alli Haber, Roxbury’s jazz collective The Makanda Project and the locals the rising hip-hop Nancia

Boston Mayor Martin Walsh at a press conference on Wednesday said, “Thank goodness 2020 is about to be behind us,” but asked people to avoid the holidays. New Year

“We ask people to be very careful – a major source of virus transmission continues to be from small gatherings,” Walsh said

Boston Police Commissioner William Gross, who joined Walsh, said he was increasing staff as usual for New Years Eve to deal with any “unruly party”

Walsh said police would give the addresses of any location violating COVID protocols to the city’s Department of Inspection Services, which can issue fines for too large gatherings

“If need be, the police will knock on doors and ask people to close,” the mayor said “But I guarantee you that the police will give us these addresses to the inspection services and that we will probably write violations when there are more than 10 people in this house”
