The Crossing, Washington Crossing Historic Park
Each December, thousands of people gather on the banks of the Delaware River to watch the reenactment of George Washington’s daring 1776 Christmas night river crossing. During the event, several hundred reenactors in Continental military dress listen to an inspiring speech by General Washington and then row across the river in replica Durham boats.
The public has two opportunities to view the reenactment at Washington Crossing Historic Park:
First Crossing - December 8 - 10am - 4pm (1pm Crossing), $8 for adults, $4 for children ages 5-11, free for children younger than 5
Christmas Day Crossing - December 25 - 12 - 3pm (1pm Crossing)
