Eggs Roles and Parades

Government cuts in Washington, D.C., put an end to White House tours (at least for now), but the Easter Egg Roll continues. On April 1, the First Family will host more than 35,000 people for the event. In New York, viewers of the informal Easter Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival will see some of the most outrageous and comical hats imaginable. If you're in London, the “Big Egg Hunt” will feature 101 eggs decorated by designers and jewelers that will be hidden around the city. If you find Humpty Dumpty, you win a year’s supply of Lindt chocolate.
