No need to travel to Washington, D.C. this Easter. The Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site is set to host Indy’s ONLY Presidential Egg Roll Race.
Kierstin Carnahan, Special Events Manager, Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site, tells us more:
A longstanding White House tradition that dates back to 1878 can be enjoyed right here in Indianapolis at the home of Indiana’s only U.S. president, Benjamin Harrison.
While in the White House, Harrison was the first to add music to the egg rolling celebration in 1889 with the United States Marine Band.
The presidential egg roll is an Easter celebration where children race to roll their decorated egg through the grass.
On Saturday, April 13, from 9:00-10:30 a.m., the celebration will include the egg roll race and meeting the Easter Bunny. Egg roll races will occur by age group on the presidential lawn.
The event is free for both children and their parents, but space is limited, so reserve your spot today!
