 Mayor Martin J. Walsh today announced that the City of Boston Credit Union will sponsor the midnight fireworks on New Year's Eve as part of the First Night 2016 celebration. 

"I am grateful for the City of Boston Credit Union for stepping up and sponsoring this year's midnight fireworks," said Mayor Walsh. "I know how special this tradition is to so many of Boston's residents and visitors, and I am confident under the experienced leadership at Conventures, this year's First Night will be a success."

The Credit Union will donate $30,000 to allow the midnight fireworks tradition to continue.  

"The City of Boston Credit Union has been serving the City for over 100 years and we support Mayor Walsh 100 percent in his effort to preserve the Boston Tradition that is the Midnight Fire Works on New Year's Eve," said President of the Boston Credit Union Board Steve Green.  

Earlier this year following a public Request for Proposal (RFP) process, the City of Boston awarded a one year partnership to Conventures, Inc. to manage and direct First Night Boston 2016.
