During the first crossing event, hundreds of troops row across the river in uniform just as they do for the ‘official’ event on Christmas Day. In addition, special colonial-era activities and demonstrations throughout the historic village provide your family with a full day of fun and learning. The Washington Crossing Reenactment Dress Rehearsal is a great way to see the reenactment if you can’t make it on December 25!
