I just called up the Wolfeboro Chamber and checked. Yes, it is official. No Wolfeboro ‘First Night’ this year; i.e., December 31, 2015 — January 1, 2016.
And NO midnight fireworks!
Instead fireworks at 6:30 pm. Mitt Wept (I hope).
This is very sad.
Yes, folks like us are to blame. We did NOT attend the last two years, having been stalwarts for a few years previously. We wanted a BIGGER, BETTER show. Yikes.
Wolfeboro Inn and others are putting on their own events. But that is not the same.
As far as I am concerned double-whammy for Wolfeboro in 2016 ALREADY — and we haven’t even begun the year. First ‘Great Waters’ CANCELS the gala ‘Chorus & Orchestra’ event for 2016. Now this.
And the crazy thing is that it ISN’T as if Wolfeboro, NH — the Capital of Heated Driveways in the Northeast — does NOT have the money to fund such events. Any of the folks that run the Heated Driveways — and I am sure that some of them have them on even now though the temperature is in the 40s — could easily finance First Night without even flinching.
