Annual fireworks show produced by Boston 4 Productions
Mayor Martin J. Walsh, the Mugar Foundation and Boston 4 Productions will welcome the New Year with an annual family fireworks display on Boston Common at 7:00 PM on Thursday, December 31, 2015.
Boston 4 Productions, the organization that produces the annual July 4th celebration on the Esplanade – also produces the Boston Family Fireworks on New Year’s Eve now in its 17th year.
This 12-minute fireworks display takes place in the intimate setting of the Boston Common Ballfield (at the corner of Boylston and Charles Streets) where people of all ages can enjoy the show.
Boston 4 Productions Executive Producer David G. Mugar said, “The Mugar Foundation is proud to present this annual tradition. Our New Year’s Eve fireworks display has been bringing people and their families to the Boston Common for 17 years and has become a special celebration, one that we take great pride in bringing to the City of Boston.”
“I encourage families from across Boston and the entire region to join us at this year’s New Year’s Eve fireworks, and I thank David Mugar for the many years he has committed to bringing entertainment to our city,” said Mayor Walsh.
The Family Fireworks ring in the New Year at 7:00 PM in Boston, which is midnight Greenwich Mean Time in London, England. This is also known as Universal Time, which is technically when the world welcomes 2016. The idea was one Mugar came up with in 2000 to ring in the new millennium and was first year Boston 4 Productions’ produced the annual fireworks display. Although the display was set to be a one-time only event, due to its great popularity the Boston Family Fireworks has now become a New Year’s Eve favorite.
Boston 4 Productions has once again hired Atlas PyroVision Productions of Jaffrey, NH who this year will be designing a colorful fireworks display that will include more than 5,000 effects with shells that will break as high as 400-feet over Boston Common.
