Celebrate President's Day With The Family!

                                                         WE'RE CELEBRATING A BIRTHDAY!

But let's start back to basics - what is President's Day, and why do we celebrate it in the USA?

Well, the first president of the United States was yep, you guessed it - George Washington. So Washington's Birthday officially honors the life and work of this great man. And Washington's Birthday (records show he was born February 22nd!) is also known as - yep, got it right again - President's Day.

Depending on which state you live in, determines which you will celebrate. But either way, super fun family days out can be had and this year, it falls on Monday February 19th. 

Let's get exploring!

Attend George Washington's Birthday Parade!


Along the streets of Alexandria, Virginia - streets where Washington once walked - the country's LARGEST President's Day Parade is held.  You can also spend time exploring the historic sites of the old town, that all played important roles in the colonial periods, and the Civil War! 

As well as the parade, Alexandria also host festival events across February, including FREE walking tours and an 18th century ball!

The parade runs from 1pm - 3pm

Celebrate at Mount Vernon!
