After celebrating the Washington Nationals championship win last year, and with spring training season right around the corner, the President's Day event provided a fantastic opportunity for the community to come together and show their team spirit. It also honored former presidents in a family-friendly environment featuring the beloved George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.
