Boston Tea Party Annual Reenactment: December 16th
The Boston Tea Party is arguably the most important event in the city’s history. Celebrate the turning point in American history at this year’s 246th annual reenactment. Guests will get to sit in on the meeting that decided it all and will get the chance to interact with John Hancock, Paul Revere, and Samuel Adams. The event begins in the South Meeting House before taking to the streets to Harborwalk, where Griffin’s Wharf once sat. From here, the Sons of Liberty storm the docked ships to dump cases of East India Tea into Boston Harbor. This is a great way to be involved with Boston’s history. Why read books about the Boston Tea Party when you can relive it every year?
