The College Station Easter Celebration, modeled after the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, has been hosted by the Bush Library and Museum in partnership with the College Station Police Department since 1999, but the event has a long tradition in College Station. The police department has been putting on this event since its humble beginnings in 1982.
The event is free and registration is only required for those who wish to participate in the door prize drawings. The door prizes, generously provided by the College Station Walmart, will be awarded at the event. These prizes consist of a bicycle and helmet to be given to a boy and girl in each of three age categories: 3 and under, 4-5, and 6-7. In order to be eligible for one of the prizes, parents must register their children at the event, and you must be present at the stage at 10:10 a.m. in order to win.
In addition to the Bush Library and the City of College Station, sponsors of the College Station Easter Celebration include College Station Walmart, MPS Eggs Services – Feathercrest, Peace 107, The Barracks, Candy 95, LaJefa, Maverick 101, The ZONE, Willy 97.7 and WTAW.
 
Free parking for the event will be available in Lots 43 and 111. Barbara Bush Drive will be closed, so attendees should enter through Research Park. For more information, visit https://www.bush41.org/events or call (979) 691-4014.
