White House Easter Egg Roll on April 25

By Associated Press

"Get Up and Go!" The White House says that's the theme of this year's Easter Egg Roll, set for Monday, April 25.

The event will feature music, sports, cooking stations, story times and the rolling of hard-boiled eggs on the South Lawn. The activities are designed to complement first lady Michelle Obama's national campaign against childhood obesity by promoting health and wellness.

Free tickets will be distributed by online lottery. Signup begins next Thursday at 12:01 a.m. Eastern time and closes March 13th at 11:59 p.m. The annual event is open to children ages 12 and younger and their families.

The tradition of rolling Easter eggs across the White House lawn dates to 1878.
