First Night Bradford in Motion
BRADFORD, PENNA. (May, 2017) – The First Night Bradford Committee is thrilled to inform you on the progress for Bradford’s upcoming 2017/2018 First Night Bradford Festivities.
First Night Bradford, New Year’s Eve at its finest is a drug and alcohol-free cherished community celebration of the New Year through the arts including both local and regional talent suitable and affordable for all ages.
The FNB committee has begun the process of preparing your 2017/2018 First Night Bradford Festivities with an upbeat, dedicated structure committed to our local and surrounding communities with a focus on teamwork.

Marionettes
Studio B Dancers,
Field Stone,
Acrobatic Comedy Dance Group
Classical Piano (Choko Aiken)
Reenactors to come in and do something on the history of the town.
Venues/Vendors:
The venues committee is still searching for appropriate venues to house the acts. The vendors committee is looking for some of the same vendors from last year.
Finale:
The finale is under discussion by all members of the FNB committee. The committee is looking into different firework providers as well as different ideas to finish out the night.
