The Easter Coconut Race is also on the program, as are other events.

President Joe Biden and his wife Jill welcomed nearly 30,000 children and adults in the cloudy skies on Monday.

The pandemic forced the White House to cancel the 2020 and 2021 editions. However, at a time when infections, hospitalizations and deaths are declining, hunting and racing are back this year.

She was the first woman to teach at a community college and set up various educational kiosks on the South Lawn of the White House.

The event should be throughout the day. We hope for the presence of stars like host Jimmy Fallon, singer Ciara and actress-singer Kristin Chenowet.

More than a dozen costumed characters, including Snoopy and Charlie Brown, are also on site.

The first wave of participants set off at 7 p.m.

The event was first held in 1878.
