Both the president and first lady have been slow to fill White House staff jobs.
But a downsized version of the 139-year-old event is kicking off early Monday on the South Lawn.
The White House is expecting more than 21,000 children and adults to attend the festivities.
That’s down from the 35,000 people who attended last year.
The first lady tweeted over the weekend that she’s looking forward to hosting the Easter Egg Roll.
The event was first held in 1878.
