Los Angeles, CA, March 9, 2016 – On Monday, March 28, 2016, the First Family will host the 138th annual White House Easter Egg Roll, and more than 35,000 people will gather on the South Lawn to join in the celebrations.
To honor the final Easter Egg Roll of the Obama Administration, this year’s theme will be “Let’s Celebrate.” The event will feature live music, sports courts, cooking stations, storytelling and, of course, Easter egg rolling.
Headlining the main stage will be performers Idina Menzel, Silentó, Echosmith, Daya, and Trevor Jackson, as well as the cast of Sesame Street and Emcee Tommy McFly. These performers will be featured on the main Rock ‘n’ Egg Roll Stage and have combined for over two billion views on YouTube.

The brand embraces the ‘green’ message in line with global trends on conservation. It is YooHoo & Friends’ mission to deliver this ‘green’ message around the world.
Characterized by their big-eyes and bushy tails, there are five key characters: YooHoo the brave Bush Baby Monkey, Pammee the courageous Fennec Fox, Chewoo the trouble-making Red Squirrel, Lemmee the grumpy Lemur and Roodee the clever Capuchin Monkey, along with more than 50 additional characters – each of whom has their own personality and brings along a new destination to explore.
