WOLFEBORO — After months of planning Last Night Wolfeboro 2020 for December 31st, virtual games, music, magic and storytelling will take place, but fireworks have been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.

According to Selectman Linda Murray and chair of Wolfeboro’s special events committee, “As we all know, the recent rise in COVID-19 cases in Wolfeboro and beyond has led to cancellation of many events. Because of this public health concern, Wolfeboro town officials have made the decision to cancel Dec. 31 fireworks as well as the postponement date. We are also considering the Last Night Wolfeboro scavenger hunt event and will update the public via social media and the town web site if that event changes.”

Meantime, the virtual celebration marking the end of 2020 is being finalized. Last Night Wolfeboro 2020 organizers are inviting people of all ages to enjoy an online New Year’s Eve day of interactive games, magic, music, storytelling and more. The Last Night Wolfeboro scavenger hunt along the Main Street shopping area is also scheduled pending any final changes.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, events may be subject to change and will be updated via social media and the Wolfeboro town web site.
