Children and parents descend on the White House for the 139th annual Easter Egg Roll on Monday.

Melania Trump is getting ready to roll, announcing on Monday the date of the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

The annual springtime festivities hosted by the first lady will be held on April 22, her press office said.

{mosads}The 141st annual event on the South Lawn is free and open to the public for families with kids no older than 13, but tickets are required.

An online lottery for tickets will open on Thursday at 10 a.m. and run through March 4.

A statement on the Easter Egg Roll’s website said the Trumps are “honored to continue the traditions of the past while weaving new traditions into the fabric of our nation.”

President Trump made headlines last year for his remarks at the Easter Egg Roll when he referred to the White House as being in “tippy-top shape.”

The president praised the White House Historical Association, thanking them and “all of the people who work so hard with Melania, everybody, to keep this incredible house, or building, or whatever you want to call it, because there really is no name for it.”

“It is special, and we keep it in tip-top shape,” he said.

“We call it sometimes ‘tippy-top’ shape. And it’s a great, great place,” President Trump added, as the Melania Trump and the Easter Bunny stood beside him for the comments to the schoolchildren and visitors gathered.
