White House Easter Egg Roll Lottery Opens Today

WASHINGTON — If you think you may be in Washington on April 21, a fun event — no matter your politics — is the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, a tradition dating back to 1878. The ticket lottery opens today and runs through March 10 at 10 a.m. ET. For details check out: It’s for kids ages 13 years and younger and their families.

From the White House: “In support of the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative to help kids grow up healthy and have the opportunity to reach their full potential, the event will feature sports courts, cooking stations, and, of course, Easter egg rolling in addition to live music and storytelling.”

“…This year’s souvenir eggs come in four bold colors – green, blue, orange, pink – and include the stamped signatures of the President and First Lady. A commemorative purple “Bo and Sunny” egg is included only in the 2014 5-pack Collector’s Egg Set.”
