To be held today, Friday.  It’s the second Tea Party in Carson City, NV:

A group of nonpartisan Northern Nevada residents, upset with what they said are the state Legislature’s harmful tax increases, will gather Friday in Carson City for the second “TEA Party” in as many months.

Organizers for the Anger is Brewing group said they expect about 2,000 people will participate in the peaceful Tax Freedom Day event in the square in front of the Legislative Building. “TEA” stands for “Taxed Enough Already.”

They said the event isn’t so much about the act of “tea bagging,” or tossing bags of tea as American colonists did to protest the British government in Boston in 1773, but to bring attention to what they said are destructive decisions by legislators that have raised taxes beyond the limits of many citizens’ ability to pay.

“We want to make the legislature understand that we’re deeply, deeply concerned about what’s happening and what’s going to happen with the budget and the effect it will have on hardworking Nevadans,” event organizer Debbie Landis said.

There were 2,000 people at the April 15 protest.
