Al Roker is repping for the Today Show at one of the year's most high-profile holiday events, the Easter egg roll at the White House.

Dating back to 1878, the Easter Egg Roll Party, held every Easter Monday, is one of the oldest events in the White House's history, and is traditionally hosted by the President and their families.

Al shared a video of his from the skies above Washington DC, writing: "So long #nyc and hello #washingtondc to report from the #southlawn of the @whitehouse for the annual #eastereggroll tomorrow morning on @todayshow."

Al even managed to score an exclusive bit from President Biden sharing that he was planning to run for President once again in 2024, although he wasn't "prepared to announce it yet."

It was a quick dash to Virginia for 68-year-old Al, who spent a majority of Easter weekend with his family, including a visiting Nick.
