The view of New Year’s Fireworks from the Museum’s Bourne Building’s windows

Join us for a festive evening of upbeat music and dancing, great food, raffle prizes, and children’s activities on Monday, December 31, from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Hosted in partnership with the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra, the event is a casual, fun-filled affair for family and friends, featuring the music of Blu Lobsta, performing their popular mix of classic rock, blues and original songs. Selected members of the NBSO will make cameo musical appearances in museum galleries.

We’ll ring in the New Year at 9:00 p.m. and kids can join the Balloon Brigade to shower the dance floor with balloons. Cap off the evening by viewing the city’s fireworks display from the comfort of the Bourne Room.

Tickets: $50 for adults; $15 for kids. Email: Sarah Budlong  sbudlong@whalingmuseum.org or call (508) 997-0046, ext. 150.

Fare includes heavy hors d’oeuvres and cash bar. Proceeds benefit the education programs of the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra and the New Bedford Whaling Museum.
