First Dog Bo Invites You to White House Easter Egg Roll

Official White House Photo by Chuck Kennedy(WASHINGTON) -- A bunny ears-clad Bo helped President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama announce Thursday that tickets to this year’s White House Easter Egg Roll are up for grabs.

Egg-rolling hopefuls can register for tickets through the White House’s online lottery from 10 a.m. Thursday until 10 a.m. Monday.

The 134th edition of the event will take place on the South Lawn of the White House Monday, April 9.  This year’s theme is “Let’s Go, Let’s Play, Let’s Move” in honor of the first lady’s “Let’s Move!” campaign to combat childhood obesity.

More than 200,000 people applied last year, but only 30,000 were awarded tickets to join the first family in the Easter tradition that dates back to 1878.

More than 35,000 people are expected to attend the egg roll this year, according to the White House.
