What is First Night you ask?  Well, it just happens to be the most awesome event ever!

On Wednesday, December 31st, First Night Northampton will fill the city with family-friendly festivities from noon until midnight. This time, the celebration culminates in the rising of a magnificent new ball from the roof of the Hotel Northampton. What a great way to recognize community arts!

May the New Year 2009 bring you and all your loved ones great blessings.
