Boston Tea Party 250th Event 

The Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum will be holding a grand reenactment of the tea party celebrating the 250th anniversary. We see this as a great opportunity to get our children involved in history. They are looking for loose-leaf tea donations to be tossed into the Boston harbor. During Saturday activities this year, the children will get to prepare burlap sacks filled with tea and will have the option to personalize them with their names. We will ship them to the Museum where they will be thrown into the harbor on December 16th, 2023.

The website describes the event below.
