THE 2011 WHITE HOUSE EASTER EGG ROLL - APRIL 25, 2011 The White House Easter Egg Roll is a tradition which dates back to 1878. The event has grown from a few local children rolling eggs on the White House Lawn to a national event filled with live entertainment, sports, interactive cooking demonstrations and of course the traditional rolling of Easter eggs. The Easter Egg Roll will promote healthy and active living and is designed for children 12 years of age and under.
When I was 5 or so my parents took my sister and I to the Easter Egg Roll. I don't honestly remember it, but I've seen the pictures of the 2 of us in our matching dresses on the White House lawn. Today the lottery is open and though Logan will despise it because of the noise, the crowds etc, I'm going to apply for tickets anyhow. It's a once in a lifetime experience!
