It's New Year's Eve Weekend 2022 in Boston, and anticipation is building. This weekend is a perfectly festive time to continue celebrating the season with family and friends. Enjoy a musical NYE with the Boston Baroque or take in "Cinderella" hosted by the Tanglewood Marionettes. You can watch in person or from the comfort of your home.

First Night Boston 2023, a celebration of artistic performances since 1975, provides entertainment throughout the city. Activities include evening fireworks and a pyrotechnics show on Copley Square to welcome the new year. If, however, you'd rather have kids in deep slumber when the clock strikes midnight, take them to an early celebration at Bessie's Rockin New Years Eve in Acton or the Boston Children's Museum for Happy Noon Years Eve.

For more family activities, see our picks for fun things to do over winter break. And, if you stay in, check out 15 Ideas for Celebrating New Year's Eve at Home with Kids. We hope you have a safe, fun, and happy New Year!
