Easter Egg Roll

On Saturday, April 15, the LBJ Future Forum and the families of Partnerships for Children held the Fourth Annual Easter Egg Roll on the lawn of the LBJ Presidential Library.

Activities included:

  • Easter Egg Roll and Hunt
  • Live music by Lucas Miller
  • Good Times Austin ice cream
  • Petting zoo
  • Face painting
  • And more!

The Easter Egg Roll is inspired by the White House Easter Egg Roll, an annual family event to hunt for and race Easter eggs on the White House South Lawn. The holiday tradition has a long history dating back to 1878 when President Rutherford B. Hayes officially opened the White House grounds to local children for egg rolling on Easter Monday. Successive presidents have continued the tradition of inviting children to the White House Lawn for egg rolling and other activities and entertainment.

Thank you to our sponsors
