This year the annual White House Easter Egg Roll will focus on healthy and green living. The Easter event is held on the White House South Lawn each spring and is one of the most eagerly anticipated spring events in our nation’s capital.
According to the official White House website, the Easter Egg Roll event will be held on April 5 and will feature live music, sports, cooking stations, storytelling and Easter egg rolling. All of the Easter activities will be geared towards encouraging children to lead healthy and active lives in order to support Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign to combat childhood obesity.
Additionally you can celebrate this tradition with your very own eco-friendly White House Easter Egg from the National Park Foundation. This year the souvenir eggs are being made in the United States from FSC-certified hardwood with vegetable-oil based inks and a water-based coating. The eggs come in four unique colors; pink, yellow, green, and purple and includes the stamped signatures of President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
