Laredo: Washington's Birthday Celebration Association Museum


The Washington’s Birthday Celebration Museum features costumes, photos and exhibits related to the city’s 110- year-old fiesta honoring George Washington for his role in making the U.S. a welcome location for the many cultures that influenced Laredo’s heritage. The celebration itself, which takes place each February for more than two weeks, draws nearly 400,000 attendees, and includes parades, a carnival, an air show, fireworks, live concerts and a traditional exchange of abrazos (hugs) symbolizing the friendly relationship between the U.S. and Mexico.
