John, Jr & Carolyn Kennedy. Said to be from April 2, 1965, which would be a private visit (not surprising) since the second year hadn't opened to the public yet. But I found a related photo (kids wearing same clothes) that is dated April 24.

I love what cousin Anthony Radziwill is doing. :D

In 1964, even the President's kids didn't get a new coat every 5 minutes like today's celebrities. I imagine they wore those until they outgrew them, then passed them down.

Similar style, but those lapel colors seem different, and Carolyn's is definitely different with that vertical pleat. The kids were growing and a year and a half had gone by in April '65. At the funeral John Jr's coat was way above his knees, but at the World's Fair it almost touched his knees, so has to be a new coat I think. At the funeral the buttons matched the fabric color too. Jackie obviously liked that matching double-breasted suit style.
