Presidents’ Day (Washington’s Birthday) in Washington D.C. and Alexandria, VA, 2019

On Washington’s Birthday also known as President’s Day, on February 18, 2019, I attended the George Washington Birthday Parade in Alexandria, VA, and the day before I visited the National Portrait Gallery, which is a part of the Smithsonian Institution, in Washington D.C. The George Washington Birthday Parade marches through Old Town Alexandria and is billed as the largest George Washington Birthday Parade in the U.S. While at the National Portrait Gallery I visited the Hall of Presidents which has portraits of nearly all American presidents. Below are some pictures I took while over Presidents’ Day weekend in February, 2019.
