PORTSMOUTH, NH. November 16, 2023. Today, Pro Portsmouth unveiled a new First Night Portsmouth Logo for this year’s celebration with a Portsmouth themed snow globe design.
The artwork chosen for First Night 2024 was created by Kelly Goodwin. (Second Place went to Carolyn Vibbert, and Third to Alexa Baryiames, PHS Graphics class.)
In partnership with Blue Dolphin Screenprint & Embroidery, Pro Portsmouth will feature an online, on-demand First Night shop. Merchandise, including long sleeve tees and sweatshirts, will be available for pre-order, and ready for pickup or mailing in December.
We Need You!
Sponsors, Donors, and Underwriters are also being sought to support the event as well as the annual program of events. The organization needs to raise $20.0K in order to fund the ice sculpture, fireworks, and police/safety detail. “Over the years, First Night Portsmouth has become another destination event on the Seacoast,” says Executive Director, Barbara Massar. “We are able to attract and entertain not only our friends and neighbors, but people who travel from all over the country to spend the holidays with us, enjoy the city. But in order to keep the event on the calendar, we need everyone’s support.”
Pro Portsmouth believes that this event is vital to the continued success enjoyed by Portsmouth as a destination for family, friends and neighbors from down the street and around the world.
