ALEXANDRIA, VA. - The city of Alexandria celebrated its 268th birthday and the nation’s 241st birthday on Saturday at Oronoco Bay Park.

People began arriving for the festivities at 5:00 p.m. where they were treated to musical entertainment by Ocho de Bastos Band, who performed a fusion of tropical rhythms with pop rock. Next came the U.S. Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps, who have inspired

audiences throughout the nation and abroad for 50 years. This musical tradition began with the musicians of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War.
