Celebrate the New Year 2013 in Massachusetts

Massachuset, which translates into “near the great hill” was the name given to the tribe living at the time in the region of present day Massachusetts by the English explorer and colonist John Smith. Located in the New England region of the northeastern USA, the state of Massachusetts is not only home to some of the world’s best universities, Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology but also boasts the sixth highest per capita GDP in the US. Massachusetts’ early history is also the history of the independence of the USA. It was the birthplace of the American Revolution that led to American independence from Great Britain. The state now has nearly 150 state forests, reservations, and parks that act as a pull to tourists despite its heavy industrialization. Local food, local music, great art installations and a few surprises will make Massachusetts 2013 New Year’s Eve bash a memorable event.

Residents will ring in the New Year with fireworks, parties, musicians – classical, pop, jazz, Dixieland, folk, country, gospel swing and rock and roll – ventriloquists, dance and drama. Across the state spectacular midnight events have been planned that will be a truly memorable welcome to the beginning of a new year. You can dance the night away to the sounds of the Moonlighters, one of Cape Cod's best dance bands, under the stars in the ballroom at the Cape Codder Resort in Hyannis, Massachusetts. Worcester, Massachusetts, dishes up a celebration of arts and community for First Night revelers in central Massachusetts. Beverly, Massachusetts, has a long tradition of hosting spectacular fireworks on New Year's Eve.
