Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site will hold their annual “Kites Over The Hudson” event this year during the 2013 Hudson River Valley Ramble at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21. The event was held for more than thirty years at the historic Headquarters and Museum every August. However, this year the event will coincide with the Ramble, which is held during the four weekends in September. With autumn winds approaching, it’s hoped kites will be airborne longer and higher.
As in the past, the first 150 children under the age of 15 will receive a free kite and prizes will be awarded in various categories. Admission to the museum and to the headquarters used by General and Mrs. Washington during the last days of the Revolutionary War is free, thanks to the support of Central Hudson and the Friends of the State Historic Sites of the Hudson Highlands.
Come fly a kite and add some color to the majestic Hudson River’s breathtaking view. Enjoy a day of family fun and fresh air. The historic site is located at 84 Liberty St., Newburgh. Call 845-562-1195 for further details or directions.
