WASHINGTON CROSSING >> The public is invited to celebrate George Washington’s 287th birthday on Sunday, Feb. 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA). Admission is free this year thanks to financial support from The Philadelphia Contributionship.

During the day, buildings in the historic village will be open and various children’s activities will be offered. At 2 p.m., visitors will gather in the park’s visitor center to sing happy birthday to George and watch him use his sword to cut his cake, which is donated by The Caketeria in Newtown.

Washington Crossing Historic Park is located at 1112 River Road in Washington Crossing, Pa. The event is sponsored by the Friends of Washington Crossing Park.
