First Night Boston Buttons - Where Are They Needed?

Question: Do I need to the button to join the activities held in Hynes Convention Center?

Susan's response: Yes, the First Night Boston Buttons are needed for all of the indoor activities, including those in the Hynes Convention Center.

The one Hynes-related exception is the Grand Procession, the huge parade that leaves from the Hynes at 5:30pm. Because it's outside, everyone can watch it, whether or not you have a button.

The parade will march down Boylston Street to the Public Garden, turn left onto Charles Street, and then right onto Beacon Street to the corner of Boston Common.

Have fun, and Happy New Year!
