Default Grand Procession 2008

The Grand Procession is one of the highlights of Boston's First Night Celebration on New Year's Eve. It starts at 5pm and goes down Boylston ending at the Common where a children's fireworks display is held at 7pm. One of the three top festivals in Boston along with the Fourth and the Marathon.

Here's a video of the Grand Procession:

I envy all of you who live in Boston.
One of a handful of American cities that are truly urban. Gorgeous colonial architecture too!

For any of you thinking of leaving to follow the lame American dream in the suburbs... don't! It will bore you to mush.

I had the pleasure of spending my four years of college there (at BU). What a beautiful, vibrant, and proud city! I would consider moving back there someday. Here are some pictures I took in 2006 and 2007. Some of the last ones were actually taken in Brookline. Enjoy!
