First Night Northampton 2007

First Night Northampton 2007

This coming week we welcome in another new year!   How does your family ring in the New Year?  Fireworks?  First day hike? Culinary traditions are very popular. In Spain they eat 12 grapes in 12 seconds. In the Netherlands it’s apple fritters. And down South it’s black-eyed peas.  Share with us in our comment box, local listserv or over on the HF Facebook page.


If you have a family-friendly event or educational program happening in Western Massachusetts that you’d like to let us know about, post your event on our “Suggest An Event” page.
