White House opens up the Easter Egg Roll (Hunt) On-Line

Yes, you can fly to Washington, D.C. with your kids and participate with Barack and Michelle at the annual White House Easter Egg Hunt (yes I know it is Easter Egg Roll, but who calls it that outside of the White House?).

President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are pleased to announce the 131st White House Easter Egg Roll. Talented performers, special guests and thousands of visitors from all over the country are expected to attend this year. For the first time, tickets for the Easter Egg Roll will be distributed online so that more children and families from across the United States have the opportunity to experience this event. There will be no ticket distribution on the Ellipse the weekend before the event. More details about the ticketing process are below.

In other words, the average joe's and joesetta's kids can participate, cutting into the "who you know" syndrome on getting a ticket. At least we hope that philosophy is cut into.
For the first time, public tickets for the 2009 White House Easter Egg Roll will be distributed online. Ticketing will be available here beginning Thursday, March 26th.

The tickets, which are timed for entrance and exit to the South Lawn, will be emailed to each confirmed guest and the original must be printed and presented to gain entry to the South Lawn. A maximum of six tickets will be issued per order. Children age ten and under, along with their families are invited to attend. There must be at least one child ten years old or under and no more than two adults per group. Tickets are required for every attendee, including small children and infants, to enter the South Lawn of the White House.

Save that link and go on line, March 26, 2009, to get your tickets.
