First Night in Northampton looking for new leadership

Posted: Updated:
NORTHAMPTON, MA (WSHM) -

Many enjoy First Night on New Year's Eve, but should it continue beyond this year, there will be a different group leading the way.

According to CBS 3 media partner Mass Live and The Republican, the Northampton Center for the Arts, which has produced the event for the past 28 years, will stop doing so after this year.

The group says First Night keeps getting bigger, but the number of people putting on the event stays the same. That makes it too difficult to continue.

Last year, thousands attended First Night activities, bringing in a record amount of money to the area.
