Hundreds of revelers lined the streets of Old Town Monday for the annual parade celebrating the birthday of the city’s most famous native son, George Washington.
The roughly two-hour long spectacle featured an appearance by the general, President Abraham Lincoln, local Boy and Girl Scout troops, re-enactors and city officials, among others. Former state Sen. Patsy Ticer, who retired from public service in 2011, served as the parade’s grand marshal.
The grand review capped off a weekend of events dedicated to the first president, including a 10k race, Revolutionary War reenactment and Washington’s “Birthnight Ball and Banquet” at Gadsby’s Tavern Saturday evening.
