    The city was mostly peaceful as it welcomed 2015. (Published Thursday, Jan. 1, 2015)

    For the most part, Boston was peaceful to bring in 2015.

    There was fried dough, good eats… And then of course these eyewear fashion statements.

    If there was anything to complain about, it may have been the cold temperatures. But for real Bostonians and New Englanders, it wasn't that bad.

    About 150 protesters showed up to Boston's First Night, like in many other cities, protesting the killing of two unarmed black men by white police officers. This protest involved a die-in.

    But for the most part, First Night in Boston was cool, calm and collected as the city brought in 2015 in style.
