Easter Egg Roll, 1981

"An estimated 21,000 children participated in the annual White House Easter Egg Roll—and that's not counting Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Big Bird, Quick Draw McGraw, who also stopped by. Monday's event was blessed with good weather and graced by First Lady Nancy Reagan's brief appearance in the midst of the festivities on the South Lawn. While the balloon-waving children frolicked and raced their eggs along the grass, other chatted with cartoon favorites or petted animals brought on the premises."
