Washington Crossing the Delaware re-enactment on Sunday

The annual memorial recreation of Washington Crossing the Delaware River is a great event for the entire family.
Come and reflect on the historic activities of 1776 and witness this great commemorative event.
 
The Crossing of the Delaware takes place on Christmas day, but there is a Dress Rehearsal this Sunday, Dec 12, 11am-3pm
 
 
The annual dress rehearsal:
Not only do General Washington and his troops cross the Delaware River in uniform just as they do on Christmas day, but additional activities and demonstrations take place throughout the historic village.
 
The event/village activities will occur from 11am to 3pm, with the crossing time occurring around 1:00 pm. River crossings are contingent upon safe conditions for participants. If the river/conditions do not allow for the crossing, do not hesitate to join us anyway as speeches, activities, and demonstrations will still occur to commemorate this great event. During the crossing, visitors are to remain behind the rope line. On the day of the dress rehearsal, admission is charged.
