George Washington’s Birthday Party
February 17 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
Various children’s activities will be offered in the park buildings and Visitor Center. At 2 PM, visitors will sing Happy Birthday to George and enjoy cake, donated by The Caketeria in Newtown, that he will cut with his sword.
Thanks to The Philadelphia Contributionship for supporting this special event.
This year, kids (and kids at heart) can help George have an extra-special celebration by sending him a homemade birthday card.
Cards can be mailed to:
P.O. Box 1776
Washington Crossing, PA 18977
Everyone who sends George a card before his big day will receive a reply from the General himself!
