Alexandria is organising a parade to honor and celebrate President's Day on February 22.

Virginia's city parade would also honor local health workers and first responders this year.

These heroes of the pandemic will be the grand marshals of the parade.

The parade celebrating the 290th birthday would begin at 1 p.m. in Old Town.

President's Day, officially Washington's birthday, is a holiday in the United States.

It is a day to honor all those who have served in the office of President of the United States.

A federal holiday to celebrate his birthday is one of the eleven permanent holidays in the USA.

George Washington was born on February 11, 1731, in Virginia, as per the Julian calendar.

Between 1879 and 1971, Washington's Birthday was celebrated on February 22.

However, with the passage of the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, it was moved to the third Monday of February.
