Outside, it’s chilly and rainy.
But inside the Westport Historical Society and TD Bank, it’s warm and inviting.
The town’s first First Light — organized by the WHS, after First Night ended its 24-year run — drew many families with young kids.
They enjoyed face and henna painting, Disney and Pixar movie shorts, popcorn and more.
The rain did not stop the outdoor activities either: horse-drawn carriage rides, and a bonfire on Veterans Green.
First Light continues through 9 p.m.
It may be the start of a new tradition.
But it’s definitely the only time we’ll ever ring in 2019.
