(NECN) - Tens of thousands flooded the streets for Boston to help ring in 2012 in style.

The crowds gathered with the NECN team on Boston Common for the 2012 New Year's Eve Live: Boston Family Fireworks event.

The live music kept families moving, along with performances by the Boston Celtics' dancers and professional ice skaters.

Those who braved the cold temperatures until midnight enjoyed a beautiful fireworks display over Boston Harbor.

Happy New Year!
