April 2, 2013 - Saban has shared a few pictures with us from the 2013 White House Easter Egg Roll:
Saban's Power Rangers Megaforce were lucky to be part of the 2013 Easter Egg Roll at the White House yesterday, where the Rangers and Robo Knight teamed up with First Lady Michelle Obama and her Let's Move! initiative to encourage children to lead healthy and active lives. The Rangers are promoting healthy living through Power Rangers emPOWER by teaching kids and families how to put the Power Rangers values of teamwork, confidence, health and physical activity into action.
This was the 135th annual White House Easter Egg Roll with more than 30,000 visitors. The event featured live music, sports courts, cooking stations, storytelling and, of course, Easter egg rolling. 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 four colorful eggs and the official First Dog "Bo" egg.
