White House Adds Bowling to Annual Easter Egg Roll Activities

About 30,000 attendees are expected at the White House's 140th annual Easter Egg Roll

First Lady Melania Trump has added bowling to the list of activities that nearly 30,000 attendees can enjoy on Monday's at the 140th annual Easter Egg Roll.

The family-focused celebration brings a large crowd to the White House every year for crafts, music, stories and the traditional Easter Egg Roll.

The usual celebrity appearances and musical performances have been scaled back, but organizers expect attendance to grow from last year's estimated 21,000 revelers.

Melania Trump, Sarah Sanders, Elaine Chao, Betsy DeVoss, Kellyanne Conway and other administration officials will host story time in the reading nook.

In addition to bowling, attendees can look forward to egg hunts, tennis, costumed characters and photo props. Plenty of craft opportunities are scheduled, including decorating cookies and eggs, making cards for the troops and a coloring wall.

Musical entertainment will be provided by the military bands.

The tradition started in 1878 during President Rutherford B. Hayes' administration.
