FREMONT - The Hayes Presidential Center's Easter Egg Roll is Saturday from 2 to 3:30 p.m.
This family activity re-creates a White House tradition begun by 19th President Rutherford B. Hayes. In 1878, Hayes opened the White House lawn to neighborhood children after Congress enacted a law forbidding youngsters from playing on the grounds of the Capitol.
The Hayes Easter Egg Roll is open to children ages 3-10. Admission is free. Each participant is asked to bring three colored, hard-boiled eggs for use in the egg-rolling games. Prizes are awarded in four age groups.
Participants also can enjoy an Easter parade led by the Easter Bunny, story telling, face painting, corn-hole games, and an egg-decorating contest. The latter requires that children bring a fourth hard-boiled and decorated egg. Judges award prizes in each age category.
