Fireworks once again lit up Boston Harbor to ring in 2018 for New Year’s! Two fireworks barges put on a colorful show starting at midnight, featuring plenty of special effects. With the double barges, the fireworks were visible across Boston’s waterfront and the inner harbor, including front row views from the North End, Seaport, South Boston, Downtown, Wharf District, Charlestown Navy Yard and East Boston.
Despite the bitter cold, crowds came out across the waterfront to watch the 15 minute display. The return of midnight fireworks on New Year Eve over Boston Harbor was privately funded through donations to local non-profits, including Friends of Christopher Columbus Park, Wharf District Council and Boston Harbor Now.
