White House Easter Egg Roll Tickets Available Now

By: Emily Leaman

Parents, start your engines: Tickets for the White House Easter Egg Roll are now available. And for the first time ever, you don't need to leave your desk to get them—the free tickets are being given away online here.

This year's egg roll will take place on Monday, April 13 starting at 8 AM. The theme is 'Let's Go Play,' a directive to encourage kids to lead healthy, active lives. The program is designed for kids under age 11 and their families. Activities will include sports, cooking classes, live musical acts, storytelling, and, obviously, the Easter egg roll.

When we clicked the link to get tickets this morning at 9:10 AM, the system said it was experiencing a high-volume of visitors and to "please try again later." Subsequent attempts to load the page timed-out altogether.

According to the White House's egg roll info page, tickets, which are timed for entry to the event, "will be available at various times throughout the day. If you are unable to order tickets at this time, please check back later."

Good luck!
