WASHINGTON--The White House annual Easter Egg roll is Monday. For the first time, tickets were distributed on the Internet so more people from outside the city could make plans to attend. Here's a preview from the Washington Times Christina Bellantoni, on Sunday pool duty.
From the pool report....
Egg roll color:
Our gather time was around 10:20 and we walked to the south lawn
driveway where the motorcade was waiting.
Before getting in the van we caught an early glimpse of the egg roll
preparation for tomorrow.
Oversized cutouts in the shape of tulips framed the fountain on the
south lawn, where several makeshift fences, tents and a large stage have
been erected. Various stereo equipment and speakers have been set up in
spots on the lawn.
There's an "egg roll enter here" sign and oversized bunnies and other
signs sprinkled on the lawn.
As we waited for POTUS in the van, about a dozen young looking, barefoot
people were spotted on a colorful fabric mats on the lawn right in front
of the residence. They were stretching and doing both handstands and
One of the agents in our van said they were doing yoga practice in
preparation for a fitness demonstration at tomorrow's egg roll. The
agent said there also will be soccer and basketball.
When we returned back, we saw more yoga demonstrating and someone was
singing on the stage for a sound check. A young woman, sorry no news on
who it was.
