The White House has opened an online lottery for parents and guardians who want to obtain tickets for the 135th annual Easter Egg Roll, which is held on the Monday after Easter on the mansion’s South Lawn. This year it will be Monday, April 1. The lottery runs through the weekend and closes at 10 AM on Monday, February 25. Enter online.

The principal restrictions are that children must be 13 years of age or younger. Tickets are free and cannot be sold.

The Easter Egg Roll is the largest event held at the White House each year, featuring live entertainment, sports and cooking activities, storytelling, and celebrity appearances along with the rolling of commemorative wooden eggs. This year’s egg will come in four colors—purple, blue, yellow, pink—and be embossed with the signatures of the President and First Lady.
