First Lady Melania Trump announced the initial details of the 139th annual White House Easter Egg Roll today. The event is scheduled to take place on April 17th on the South Lawn of the White House. The President and First Lady are inviting families with children aged 13 and under to join them and White House staff for a day full of festivities and celebrations.
White House Easter Egg Roll tickets are allotted through an online lottery, although tickets are free to the public.
The Easter Egg Roll is a tradition at the White House dating back to President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1878.
Further information surrounding the Easter Egg Roll and the lottery for tickets will be announced later this month.
