World-renowned Marvel Super Heroes will make a special appearance at the 2012 White House Easter Egg Roll.  Costume characters including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America will be on hand for a meet and greet with children.

This will be the 134th annual White House Easter Egg Roll with more than 30,000 people visiting the South Lawn for games, stories, and, of course, the traditional egg roll.

Souvenir White House Easter eggs first became an annual keepsake in 1981, when President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan hosted a hunt for wooden eggs that bore the signatures of famous people. The tradition continues this year with the addition of an official First Dog “Bo” egg. These collector’s eggs are available to view or purchase atwww.easter.nationalparks.org.
