I can’t even imagine the details that need to go into organizing an event such as New Year’s Rockport Eve. With 15 incredible venues and 38 performers and/or acts covering the entire downtown area over the course of 6 rockin’ hours, Rockport was the place to be on New Year’s Eve!
Massive kudos to those involved in the planning, execution, volunteering, and entertaining aspects of this event!
My only regret is that we had to limit our fun by only attending 6 of the many, many options.
We traveled in a group of about 6 adults and 7 kids. Hitting the Shalin Liu for the Cape Ann Big Band was an absolute must and was also our first stop! Such a tremendous venue and band….it was the absolute best way to kick off our New Year’s Eve celebration!
We then took in a Story teller, some face painting, balloon animal making, The Jolly Rogues and their Seafaring music, Jah Spirit and some awesome reggae music (some mad dancing), and then the one and only Dan King.
We made it back to our friends’ beautiful home in time for some late night drinks and snacks with about 35 minutes to spare before the big midnight moment.
Rockport proved one again, that we are beyond fortunate to call it home.
