The White House is anticipating around 40,000 individuals to attend its annual Easter egg roll, which is themed around 'egg-ucation'

Approximately 40,000 individuals are projected to participate in the “EGG-ucation”-themed White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday. This is about 10,000 more people than last year.

Approximately 40,000 individuals are projected to join in the “EGG-ucation”-themed White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday. This is about 10,000 more than last year.

Jill Biden, who has been a teacher for over 30 years, is changing a long-running tradition that began in 1878 into an “EGG-ucational” experience. Numerous activities on the South Lawn and Ellipse will assist children in learning about farming, healthier eating, exercise, and more, as announced by the White House on Thursday.

They will still have the opportunity to guide hard-boiled eggs across the lawn to a finish line.

The attendees will include thousands of military and veteran families, as well as their caregivers and survivors. Members of the general public secured tickets through an online lottery. They will be admitted in nine groups, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Monday’s “egg-stravaganza” will be the third Easter egg roll hosted by President Joe Biden and the first lady. They were unable to hold the event in 2021, which was Biden’s first year in office, due to covid-19.

The White House Easter Egg Roll originated in 1878, when President Rutherford B. Hayes allowed children onto the White House lawn after they were asked to leave the grounds of the U.S. Capitol.
