Friends of Christopher Columbus Park (FOCCP) last New Year’s Eve rekindled the annual Boston Harbor Fireworks display with generous donations from numerous sources.
In 2016, the Harbor was dark by midnight New Year’s Eve. Businesses were impacted and Boston residents and those that came to town for the fireworks were disappointed, according to FOCCP.
Taking the bull by the horns, FOCCP sponsored the effort to bring in the New Year in style coordinating two-barge fireworks display on the Harbor that lit up the sky at midnight.
FOCCP has been fundraising to provide another Harbor event to bring in 2019 in style, but is still in need of additional funding in order to be sure that this December 31 isn’t dark and thousands of people will enjoy the firework display bringing the New Year in with the bang.
