On a Roll: How to Get Tickets to the Easter Egg Roll

Parents, mark your calendars for Monday, April 5—that’s the date of this year’s White House Easter Egg Roll.

No, strike that; mark them for February 25 through 28. Those are the dates when you can participate in the lottery to get free tickets.

Like last year, anxious parents from across the country will be able to get tickets online. While the online system eliminates the need to camp out all night for tickets, last year’s lottery wasn’t without its own, um, kinks.

But if you’re willing to try, try again, make sure you’re a pro at rapidly refreshing Web pages, and bookmark this site, where you’ll be able to vie for tickets starting February 25 at 12:01 AM. And for more information on this year’s egg roll, go to the White House’s official Easter Egg Roll page.
