Annual Eisenhower Easter Egg Roll

Saturday, April 20, 2019

This is our 7th annual Eisenhower Easter Egg Roll on the campus of the Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum and Boyhood Home in Abilene, Kansas. This event is modeled after the White House Easter Egg Roll which has taken place in our nation's Capitol since the 1870s, except for a period of twelve years beginning during World War II. President and Mrs. Eisenhower revived the tradition in 1953. The Eisenhower Foundation partners with the Eisenhower Presidential Library and the Abilene Parks and Recreation Department to welcome hundreds of children and their families to Ike's boyhood home each year on the Saturday before Easter. Arrive early! The Easter egg hunt, by age group, begins promptly at 1:00 PM, followed by several activity stations including an old-fashioned egg roll, face painting, petting zoo, craft area, prize walk, and a chance to visit with the Easter Bunny. The 2019 Eisenhower Easter Egg Roll is sponsored by Bert & Wetta Sales and Pinnacle Bank, all of Abilene, Kansas.
