Come Celebrate George Washington’s 283rd Birthday
February 22, 2015

Come celebrate George Washington’s 283rd birthday on Sunday, February 22, 2015 from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm at Washington Crossing Historic Park in Pennsylvania. Admission is $1.

During the day, buildings in the historic village will be open with demonstrations taking place in the blacksmith shop, a 17th-century birthday cake demonstration in the Hibbs House, Colonial dress-up in the Frye House, and more. Every child will receive materials to make a special birthday postcard for General Washington, who will arrive at the park at 1:00 pm. Soon after his arrival, visitors will sing Happy Birthday to him and enjoy cake that he will cut with his sword.

Washington Crossing Park is located at the intersection of Routes 32 and 532 in Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania. This event is sponsored by the Friends of Washington Crossing Park in partnership with the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. Individuals with disabilities who need special assistance or accommodations to participate in this event should call 215-493-4076.
