boston tea partyBoston will be celebrating the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party tonight at The Boston Tea Party Ship & Museum in the Seaport District.

"It's December 16 and trouble is brewing in Boston! Travel back in time and relive one of the most iconic public protests in American history-- the Boston Tea Party! Gather at Old South Meeting House, the actual historic landmark where the colonists met in 1773, with Boston's infamous rabblerousers like Samuel Adams, Paul Revere-- and even some crown-loving Loyalists-- to debate the tea tax and demand liberty from the British crown!"

The events will be from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. The first event, called the 'The Meeting of the Body of the People', is a ticketed event. Guests can still purchase tickets at the Old South Meeting House for a limited time.

'Huzzah for Griffin's Wharf' and the 'Boston Harbor, a Tea Pot Tonight' finale are free and open to the general public.
