Boston Harbor Now Announces Annual New Year’s Eve Waterfront Ice Sculpture Stroll

Special to the Independent 

Boston Harbor Now has announced the return of the annual New Year’s Eve Waterfront Ice Sculpture Stroll, with more ice sculptures than ever before in a variety of locations across the Boston Waterfront. The Waterfront Ice Sculpture Stroll will kick off on Sunday, December 31, starting at 1 p.m. and will continue until dusk. 

The Waterfront Ice Sculpture Stroll is a part of Boston Harbor Now’s “New Year’s Eve on the Waterfront” programming and features a lineup of activities for guests of all ages to help ring in the new year. This year’s event will showcase over 35 handcrafted ice sculptures hosted by businesses and cultural sites along the waterfront, making it the largest Sculpture Stroll in Boston Harbor Now’s history and the Region.

Boston Harbor Now also announced that new locations have been added for guests to view these ice sculptures, which will span from Roxbury to Revere, just north of Boston. New locations include Boston Margaritaville, the Sam Adams Tap Room in Faneuil Hall, the Charlestown Navy Yard, and Wulf’s Fish at the Massport Boxes at the Fish Pier.

Guests are encouraged to snap a photo next to their favorite sculptures to be entered into Boston Harbor Now’s Staycation Giveaway. Each picture taken outside an ice sculpture with the tag @BostonHarborNow will count as an entry to win prizes like restaurant gift cards, an overnight hotel stay, tickets to the New England Aquarium, a family four-pack to the Boston Harbor Islands, and more.
