COLLEGE STATION, Texas, June 12 (UPI) -- The George Bush Presidential Library Foundation in Texas said it is celebrating former President George H.W. Bush's birthday with colorful socks.

The foundation said the 89th birthday of the former president, who is known for wearing brightly colored socks to various events, is being marked by workers donning similarly exuberant foot-coverings and members of the public being invited to share their own sock photos online.

The foundation said it will choose selections from the online photos to present to Bush as a birthday gift.

The George Bush Presidential Library and Museum is hosting a birthday celebration Wednesday with free birthday cake, Blue Bell ice cream and refreshments for members of the public.
