For the 31st time, we thank our performance venues, their staffs, and the scores of volunteers who worked cheerfully for hours to make First Night Northampton 2016 a resounding success! We recognize our loyal button sales vendors throughout the Valley, our co-presenters at PeoplesBank, and our many generous business sponsors. We are deeply grateful to the City of Northampton for bringing us brilliant fireworks and to all of the municipal departments that cooperate with us to realize this signature event. We take note of our friends at the Hotel Northampton who orchestrate the ball-raising and the Rotary Club of Northampton who partner with us in the volunteer effort. And a standing ovation for the enthusiastic and multi-talented performers of First Night!
