ALEXANDRIA, VA. - Alexandria has held a parade in honor of George Washington’s birthday since 1800. This year, in recognition of the 286th anniversary of the first president’s birth, the parade’s grand marshals were the first responders who came to the aid of victims in the Simpson Field shooting last summer.

The parade also included military units and, new this year, a group of World War I re-enactors. The Ballyshaners also marched to honor President and Mrs. Washington and to remind Alexandrians that the City’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is coming soon, on March 3.
