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 first opportunity to witness the reenactment is Sunday, December 8, from 10 AM to 4 PM in the Washington Crossing Park’s Historic Village. The crossing begins at approximately 1 PM. In addition to the crossing reenactment, special colonial-era activities and demonstrations in the Historic Village will offer a full day of family fun and learning.
