    The George Washington Birthday Celebration Committee is one of the very oldest community organizations in Alexandria. From the time of the Revolutionary War, the people of this City have celebrated the birthday of George Washington. Whether through marching in parades, reenacting historic events, musical performances, or dancing at the birthnight balls, our citizens consider an annual remembrance of the Father of Our Country to be important and worthwhile.
