Washington Crossing the Delaware River

Washington Crossing the Delaware River

History buffs get into the spirit of the season when they witness Washington Crossing the Delaware River, a re-enactment staged at Washington Crossing Historic Park on Christmas Day. (Dress rehearsal takes place a couple of weeks prior.) Two days of family-friendly colonial games, crafts and other activities accompany the re-enactments.
