Publick Reading of the Declaration of Independence

A park ranger in period clothing will perform a reading of the Declaration of Independence. Before the advent of television and radio important government announcements were read to the public in a common square. Come ready to participate in the cheering for Liberty! There will be toasts and musket fire! The reading takes about 90 minutes.

Pre-registration is preferred; meet at the field near the pavilions. Bring a blanket or folding chair. In case of rain, the event will be moved to the Salt Wing.

All ages; free.
