First Night Westport/Weston 2016 was a huge success. The weather was fabulous, the turnout the best in years and the performances were terrific.

None of this was possible without the support of our corporate sponsors and private donors. First Night is an independent, not-for-profit organization and the event is endorsed by the towns of Westport and Weston.

Special thanks goes to Al’s Angels who sponsored the amazing fireworks display. Saugatuck Sweets was our button sponsor; the Tea Room and Town Hall venue was sponsored by Bigelow Tea. If you enjoyed the horse-drawn carriage rides, thanks to the Downtown Merchants Association.

Other sponsors include Honda of Westport, the Human Services Council, Patriot Bank, People’s United Bank, Terex, the Masonic Lodge 65 and the Westport Young Woman’s League.

A special thanks goes to Miggs Burroughs who designed another great button and Dattco, who donates our buses that transported our attendees back and forth to the Saugatuck Elementary School.

And a final thank you to the First Night board and our terrific volunteers who gladly donate their time to the success of this event.

Hope to see you all next year!
