It is that time of year again, when kites of all shapes and colors will fill the sky over the Hudson River. On Saturday, September 26th from 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site will hold their annual Hudson River Ramble event, “Kites Over the Hudson.” The first 150 children 15 and under will receive a free kite that day. Prizes will be awarded in various kite categories and refreshments will be served to all.
The site is open from 11 AM until 5 PM, providing tours of the Hasbrouck House where General and Mrs.Washington headquartered during the final months of the Revolutionary War. The Museum, housing the award-winning exhibit Unpacked & Rediscovered: Selections from Washington’s Headquarters’ Collection, will also be open to the public.
Admission is free for the day compliments of Central Hudson, and kites are provided by the Friends of the State Historic Sites of the Hudson Highlands.
