The Boston Tea Party makes its way to Peoria!

Several Peoria Tea Party Rallys are taking place on tax day, Wednesday, April 15. They will both take place downtown by the courthouse. The first one I was notified of via Peoria Republican Women e-mail. Here are the details:

Date: Wednesday, April 15, 2009
Time: 12:00 PM
Location: Peoria County Courthouse Courtyard
324 Main Street, Peoria, IL 61602

Do you love this country? Do you love the rights and freedoms this country provides that so many died for? Do you want to see actions more than words from your politicians that reflect the principles and values you stand for? come to the Peoria Tea Party.

We will be meeting in the courtyard area where the vendors stands are in the summer. Please bring family and friends to join the cause. This would be a great experience for youngsters and teens. Also, bring signs that are constructive and peaceful. Make sure your voice is heard.

The details of another tea party taking place were posted on the Community Word blog here. That tea party is sponsored by a national organization. They will be meeting downtown as well. It appears there may be some overlap. I wonder if we should all try to join forces? In any event, I'm going to try to hit both of them. See you there!

Update: Here is some information about the Boston Tea Party for a few of my historically challenged friends at Peoria.com, who allege similarities between last weeks passage of the sales tax by voter referendum and the British Monarchy's taxation of the American colonists leading up to the infamous Boston Tea Party protests in 1773.
