Tens of thousands of people lined the streets of Washington, DC, many arriving as early as 4am, to catch a glimpse of Pope Francis.
Crowds waiting for the Papal Parade to begin look over to the White House, where President Obama held a State Arrival Ceremony for Pope Francis before his private meeting with him.
Cameras are ready as the Popemobile nears. The parade around Washington DC’s Ellipse lasted 12 minutes.
Hours of waiting took a toll on some bystanders.
Vendors frantically hawked their leftover T-shirts to a departing crowd.
