WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says the Easter Egg Roll will be held on Monday, April 21.

Dating to 1878 and attended by tens of thousands of children and parents, the event will support first lady Michelle Obama's anti-childhood obesity initiative. It will feature sports courts, cooking stations, live music and storytelling, as well as the traditional rolling of hard-boiled eggs across the South Lawn.

The White House says tickets will continue to be distributed through an online lottery system so that people from all across the country can participate.

The lottery will open at 10 a.m. on March 7 and close three days later on March 10 at 10 a.m.

The tickets are free but are non-transferable. Additional information can be found online, at .
