New Year’s celebration is going to be different for Concepción, since January 1st not only marks the start of 2018, but also the bicentennial of Chile’s proclamation of independence; which took place almost two centuries ago on Concepción’s Independencia square. The party will start at 06:00 p.m. with a dramatic play, followed by live music, and it will finish with fireworks.
