Each December, thousands gather on the banks of the Delaware River to watch the reenactment of George Washington’s daring 1776 Christmas night river crossing.

The public has two opportunities to view the reenactment at Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA). The first is on Sunday, Dec. 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (actual crossing at approximately 1 p.m.). On this day, in addition to the crossing, special colonial-era activities and demonstrations throughout the historic village will provide families with a full day of fun and learning.
