White House Easter Egg Roll

WHITE HOUSE (AP) -- The White House has once again allowed thousands of children to take over its grounds this morning as they scrambled for Easter eggs at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

This traditional springtime event featured thousands of children dressed for winter, but that didn't stop them from enjoying egg roll races, an egg hunt, musical performances, reading, magicians and face painting.

All of this was done under the supervision of first lady Laura Bush, who says the event is "one of the happiest traditions" at the White House.

More than 18-thousand tickets were distributed for the event that was first held by President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1878.
