Obama's White House Easter Egg Roll For 30,000 People

White House Easter egg roll keeps getting bigger

USA Today


He has a $14.3 trillion national debt, an 8.8% unemployment rate, two wars and a re-election campaign to worry about. Even so, President Obama is making time Monday to have 30,000 people over for eggs.

And not just any people: More people than on any other day of the year. People from every state. Famous people like singer Colbie Caillat and TV star Kelly Ripa, the Harlem Globetrotters and Sesame Street’s Elmo.

The White House Easter Egg Roll has been a fixture since 1878. Its evolution into a star-studded, 11-hour eggs-travaganza featuring live music, dancing, sports and even yoga has been building over the past 30 years.

This year’s event will be the longest yet — starting at 7:30 a.m. and ending at 6:20 p.m. in order to accommodate five groups of 6,000 guests for two hours apiece. Nothing that happens at the White House the rest of the year — not even state visits by foreign leaders — are as crowded.

Bob, I read the people that got to attend requested to come and then the WH picked the ones they wanted. Not sure how true that is.
