About: First Light Provincetown stretches the New Year’s celebration into a fun-filled weekend December 28-January 1! Put 2019 behind you on New Year’s Eve, when the town’s terrific restaurants will offer prix fixe menus along with your favorite bubbly. A lineup of parties for every taste will be on tap once romance and resolutions meet at midnight, as Ptown’s venerable dance clubs and bars will challenge your endurance with extended hours until 2 a.m.

After ringing in 2020, wake up for New Year’s Day brunch, a can’t-miss annual tradition in Ptown. Join townies for the Pajama Brunch, an early energy booster to keep your juices flowing. The frigid waters of Cape Cod Bay host the New Year’s Day Polar Bear Plunge, and after, you can shake off the shivers and warm up at the Après Chill Chili Party, to get you ready for another devilish night out on the town!

  • a spectacular fireworks display on the beach (December 30 at 5:30)
  • craft fair
  • New Year’s dance parties
  • live performances
  • New Year’s Day Polar Bear Plunge (followed by a warm-up Chili Party!)
