Easter Celebration

Date(s): March 31, 2012
Time(s): 9:30 a.m. - noon
Location: George Bush Presidential Library and Museum

The George Bush Presidential Library and Museum will hold our annual Easter Celebration March 31 from 9:30 a.m. to noon at the museum. Activities will include entertainment, games, face painting, an Easter egg hunt, egg roll, egg toss, complimentary refreshments and photos with the Easter Bunny (must have own camera).

The College Station Easter Egg Hunt has been a long standing tradition hosted by the Police Department. From humble beginnings in 1982, the Easter Celebration has evolved to the highly-anticipated event of the spring. The Bush Library and Museum began partnering with the police department in 1998, and each year the event becomes increasingly popular with the local community, drawing larger and larger crowds. The museum has added activities to the event in an attempt to model the celebration after the White House Easter Egg Roll.

Specially designed wooden White House-style Easter Eggs are given to the children. There will be carnival games and activities, face painting and more. Local merchants contribute prizes to give away, and a boy's and a girl's bicycle and helmet will be awarded in each of the three age categories: 3 and under, 4-5 and 6-7. Parents must register their children to win.

A kite-flying contest will begin at 11 a.m. in the field across from the Bush Library and Museum. Children and adults who want to participate must bring their own kite.

Barbara Bush Drive will be closed to traffic before and during the event. Participants should access the museum via Research Drive, Discovery Drive or John Kimbrough Blvd. Parking will be available in the museum parking lot and Bush School lot (PA 111). Handicapped parking will be available in the museum parking lot.

New this year is a planned Ukrainian Easter Egg Decorating workshop. The workshop will teach how to decorate eggs with wax and dyes, creating the beautifully artistic designs for which Ukraine is famous. Places are limited so we urge you to join as soon as possible. The workshop is open to all 16 and older. The registration fee is $25, which will cover cost of supplies.
