Fly Kites at Washington’s HQ

September 24, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Colorful kites will dot the horizon at Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site on Saturday, September 24th when the site’s annual Hudson River Valley Ramble event, Kites Over the Hudson, takes place from 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM. FREE kites will be given to the first 150 children, fifteen years of age and younger and FREE refreshments will be served.

Watch kites soar high into the sky from the vantage point of a lawn chair or blanket. Bring a picnic lunch and make a day of it while taking in the scenic beauty of the Hudson River and the backdrop of the Highlands. Meet members of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, Chapter 1782 at the Kite Hospital as they “doctor” broken kites.

The site will be open that day from 11 AM until 5:00 PM with free admission to the Museum, including a guided tour of the historic headquarters compliments of Central Hudson. Kites for the event are provided by the Friends of the State Historic Sites of the Hudson Highlands.
