Hampton Beach, N.H.: New Year’s Eve 2020 (i.e., December 31, 2019) Fireworks CANCELLED — Not A Joke, OFFICIAL.
I read about this YESTERDAY and didn’t believe it. Thought it was a joke.
Today, I called up the ‘Ashworth By The Sea‘ Hotel and checked. It is kosher.
Shame. I am bummed.
I think Portsmouth is still going ahead.
From Facebook also.
Wolfeboro, N.H.: New Year’s Eve 2020 (i.e., December 31, 2019) Fireworks CANCELLED — Also So NO ‘First Night’.
The fireworks, BOTH 6:30 & 8:30pm, were ‘just’ CANCELLED.
Bummer. I was checking whether it was 6pm or 6:30pm! Glad I checked.
Haven’t missed a Wolfeboro New Year’s Eve firework show in YEARS.
There has been NO ‘First Night‘ in Wolfeboro on December 31, 2019.
There was NO ‘First Night’ in 2018, 2017 or 2016!
Instead there is a ‘Last Night’ that wraps up by 9pm.

I have always maintained that there is no such thing as a bad fireworks show. They are all good, by default and definition.
So, these fireworks, at the ungodly early hour of 6:30pm, were good. People liked them. They applauded and honked their horns. So, that alone was good.
It was sure cheerful and a nice prelude to the snowstorm that was on the way. As it transpires the timing kind of worked out. Per the weather forecasts it did start snowing sharp at 8pm.
Not that many people and Wolfeboro was rather quiet. No traffic, whatsoever.
To I, New Year’s Eve is not complete without fireworks. So, I am indeed glad that we went.
This was also the case last year and the year before.
No ‘First Night’, with a midnight fireworks, as there used to be — instead a ‘Last Night’ that wraps up by 9pm.
An early end will not be a bad thing in 2018 since we will be getting snow/ice/rain around that time.

I said that this was a possibility in my December 12, 2016, “No First Night” post.
Well, it has become a reality.
Shame it ends at 10pm — hence why it is ‘Last Night’ (2016) as opposed to ‘First Night’ 2017.

I could be wrong, but I can’t get any sound from this. I thought that clicking the speakers …
Plus, other than the dancing, can’t get it to do anything else.
Come on Google. YOU can do better.
I want a singing and dancing one TOMORROW.
That is an ORDER. OK?
