Thousands of Kids Attend Trump's 3rd Easter Egg Roll

Thousands of kids gathered on the South Lawn of the White House for the annual Easter Egg Roll on Monday.

It's the third time President Trump and first lady Melania Trump have hosted the event, which is one of the oldest White House traditions.

As many as 30,000 people joined in with the festivities, and 74,000 eggs were donated by U.S. egg farmers for the event.

As well as rolling hard-boiled eggs across the lawn and hunting for Easter eggs, children could pose for photos with the Easter Bunny, play "Be Best" hopscotch and mail postcards to anyone they wished, with the goal of spreading kindness, according to the first lady's office.

The president and his wife addressed the partygoers from the balcony alongside the Easter Bunny.

In 2008, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer dressed as the Easter Bunny. No word yet on who took on the role this year.

On Sunday, the first family, including Tiffany Trump, attended Easter Sunday services in West Palm Beach. The president then enjoyed brunch at Mar-a-Lago before returning to the White House on Sunday afternoon.
