Can't make it to today's White House Easter Egg Roll? Well, you can watch it on four official video livestreams. Here are the events related to eggs, music, stories and food. Here's the schedule of events.
It promises to be a bit of a madhouse. As Garance Franke-Ruta writes in The Washington Post: "30,000 people from 45 states are expected to attend -- about 10,000 more than usual. The theme of this year's event is 'Let's go play,' to encourage young people to lead healthy and active lives. The South Lawn egg roll, a Washington tradition since 1878, is open in two-hour shifts to pre-ticketed families with children 10 or younger and features athletic activities -- such as dance, yoga, soccer and basketball -- with stars of Major League Soccer, the National Basketball Association and the Women's National Basketball Association; cooking classes with celebrity chefs such as José Andrés, Spike Mendelsohn and Art Smith; and live music from the likes of Fergie, Ziggy Marley and Jessica Jarrell."
