Nothing Like President’s Day at Mount Vernon

Crowds came out to celebrate the occasion.

The tri-corner hats and fancy outfits were out for this year's President's Day event at the Mount Vernon plantation on the Potomac River. The day started with a birthday card drawing event and a wreath laying at George Washington's tomb. This was followed by a Tactical demonstration by the Commander-in-Chief’s Guard, and a musical demonstration by The Old Guard Fife & Drum Corps. The rest of the day featured a visit to the George Washington Presidential Library, a meet and greet with their George Washington historical interpreter, food trucks and baked goods at the Half Crown Bakehouse.
