You can celebrate First Night Cape Cod in many ways this weekend. Three different Cape communities ring in the new year in very different ways. Sandwich First Night is known for its reveler’s parade and its lighted giants. The giants are large light sculptures that are set up in town during the holiday season. In Chatham, there are two different fireworks displays. There’s an early one for the kids and another one at midnight that accompanies the dropping of the Countdown Cod. In Provincetown, the celebrating goes on for days and concludes with the only fireworks display on New Year’s Day. The Sandwich and Chatham festivities are traditional non-alcoholic First Night events and the Provincetown one is not.
