CANCELED: Assunpink Firewalk and Reading of “The American Crisis”
Iron Bridge at Mill Hill Park, 165 East Front Street
Due to the rapid rise of COVID cases; the Old Barracks Museum has canceled its Patriots Week events for Sunday, Dec 26. The decision, while difficult, was made to protect the safety of both its staff and the public. This includes the Puppet Show and all events at the Old Barracks Museum on Dec 26, as well as the musket demonstration at Mill Hill Park. Keep in mind, this is a fluid situation and some event changes may not yet be reflected on the site. We encourage you to call the organization that is hosting an event you plan to attend in advance. Please visit our Facebook page for updates, as well as individual organizations’ websites for more details.
Join Mayor Gusciora and a colorful cast as they usher in a new holiday tradition in the city of Trenton. As darkness falls, watch Continental soldiers light 13 torches along the south bank and hear a dramatic reading of Thomas Paine’s “The American Crisis.” Hosted by the city of Trenton in collaboration with the Old Barracks Museum and Trenton Downtown Association.
