First Night New Bedford
Come ring in the New Year with family and friends in New Bedford! From 5-8 PM on Sun., 12/31, enjoy family-friendly programming in historic downtown and at 8:30 PM the city has a special treat in store: for the first time in New Bedford an LED drone show will light up the sky with a curated display set to the tunes of DJ Mikey Life of Abstrakt Music!
