RELIVING THE BOSTON TEA PARTY

  • Monday > December 16

  • On December 16, 240 years ago, Colonists in Boston staged a public protest that touched off the American Revolution. On Monday, reenactors will pay tribute to that night’s historic events. A $15 ticket gets you into the 6:30 p.m. tea tax debate at the Old South Meeting House. You don’t need a ticket to join the 7:30 p.m. procession from there to the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museums, to watch the dumping of the tea. 800-838-3006; bostonteaparty2013.bpt.me
