Barrack Obama is all on a "change" spree, and continuing the saga, this year for the first time tickets for the Easter Egg Roll will be distributed online so that more children and families from across the United States have the opportunity to experience this event.
President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama announced the 2009 White House Easter Egg Roll, which is to be held on Monday, April 13, 2009 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the South Lawn of the White House. Talented performers, special guests and thousands of visitors from all over the country are expected to attend this year.
The White House Easter Egg Roll has quite a history, dating back to 1878, when the event was designed to encourage children and their families to come outdoors and celebrate the start of the spring season. This year, the theme for the White House Easter Egg Roll is ‘Let’s go play’, encouraging America’s youth to lead healthy and active lives. The White House will open the South Lawn to children age ten and under, along with their families, to enjoy sports, cooking classes, live musical performances, storytelling and, of course, the traditional Easter Egg Roll.
