The public is invited to witness a free, once-in-a-lifetime artistic rendering of George Washington’s daring crossing of the Delaware River on Saturday, Sept. 16 at Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA).

Beginning shortly after 7 p.m., world-renowned Swiss artist Gerry Hofstetter and his team of lighting experts will project an array of images onto an 80-by-30-foot “water shield” created by a pump that will be carried out into the river aboard one of the park’s Durham boats. This giant curtain of water will last for approximately one hour and music will accompany the show. Spectators may bring their own blankets and chairs to watch from the riverbank.
