A steady rain didn't interfere with the fireworks or the fun line up for First Night Bethlehem 2019! The event was well attended throughout the evening, thanks to everyone who came out to ring in the New Year!
Our sincere gratitude to all the participating venues who served as hosts and area businesses that stayed open to accommodate attendees; to Bethlehem organizations and businesses that sold First Night buttons; to sponsors and donors for their contributions to help defray costs; to town departments for their support; to the organizing partners for their time and energy planning First Night; and to the dozens of volunteers who joined us to celebrate New Year’s Eve.
Because of the many who contributed their valuable time, creativity, sponsorship funds, and know-how, First Night 2019 was a success and surpassed its fundraising goal. Four non-profits, Bethlehem Opportunities Unlimited, Friends of Bethlehem Parks & Recreation, Senior Projects, Inc., and the Community Fund, and their programs that help Bethlehem neighbors in need, will benefit.
The First Night organizing committee strives to improve First Night Bethlehem every year while maintaining a community vibe. Your feedback and suggestions are appreciated to help plan future events – please email the Supervisor’s Office and let us know your thoughts on what worked best and where we could make improvements. We would love to hear from you!
