Lots of eggcitement for kids
The famous White House Easter egg roll traces its roots to Fremont, Ohio. It was 19th U.S. President Rutherford B. Hayes of Fremont who started the egg roll in 1878. The Hayes Presidential Center celebrates that historical fact with its Hayes Easter Egg Roll. The annual event takes place on the grounds of the Presidents Spiegel Grove estate from 2-3:30 p.m. Saturday, April 4 and is sponsored by Roots Poultry Inc. and Welly's Horseradish .
Children ages 3-10 are invited to compete in a variety of egg-rolling contests. Prizes are awarded in four age categories, and every child receives a balloon, a pass to the Hayes Home or Hayes Museum, and treats. Admission is three hard-boiled colored eggs for use in the contests. When the egg-rolling contests are finished, children are invited to participate in story time, face painting, corn-hole games, and visits by none other than the Easter Bunny.
