Cabbage Patch Kids Costume Characters will be participating in the

 2014 White House Easter Egg Roll

 

The 2014 Easter Egg Roll, which takes place on the South Lawn of the White House, is focused on promoting health and wellness with the theme, “Hop into Healthy, Swing into Shape.”  The event will feature live music, sports courts, cooking stations, storytelling and, of course, Easter egg rolling.  The activities will encourage children to lead healthy, active lives in support of the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative.

 

Cabbage Patch Kids costume characters Brian Josh and Amy Sue are excited about being at the White House and participating in all the activities. They hope Cabbage Patch Kids parents and family will come out and join them. The ‘Kids always look for reasons to have family gatherings, whether in Washington, D.C., at the White House or BabyLand General Hospital, their 70,000 sq. foot home in the small mountain community of Cleveland, Georgia. The ‘Kids enjoy making connections across the United States as well as reaching out to family worldwide.

 

This will be the 136th annual White House Easter Egg Roll with more than 30,000 people visiting the South Lawn that include 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 four colorful eggs and the official First Dog’s egg, which features First Dog’s Bo and, for the first time ever, Sunny.  These collector’s eggs are available to view or purchase at www.easter.nationalparks.org.

 

To learn more about the Easter Egg Roll visit www.WhiteHouse.gov/EasterEggRoll.  Tune in for live streams from the South Lawn on April 21, 2014 on WhiteHouse.gov/live.  You can also join the conversation online using the hashtag #EasterEggRoll and get the latest updates by visiting Let’s Move! on Twitter and Facebook.

Enter Kids Q Contest. Limited availability for each age category.

Cleveland, Georgia (August 1, 2013) – The Hillbilly Hog BBQ Throwdown and Fall Leaf Festival will once again take place at BabyLand General® Hospital in Cleveland, Georgia. With the event taking place at a facility like BabyLand, there’s sure to be lots of fun for kids. One of the special “kid friendly” features at this family friendly event is the return of the Kid’s Q cooking competition. Kids will have a chance to display their own BBQ culinary skills on October 26th at the 2013 Hillbilly Hog BBQ Throwdown. The Kid’s Q returns for the 3rd year as part of the event and the popularity of the event continues to grow. Event Organizer, Heather Sinyard, says, “I’ve been very impressed each year with the abilities and skills of each child participating. We started the first year with just 3 participants and ended up having to turn several away last year because we quickly filled the 12 slots.”

The Kid’s Q cooking competition is sponsored again this year by BabyLand General® Hospital and Southern Q Smokers. Each child competing will be provided with a prep area, a grill from Southern Q Smokers, Kingsford Charcoal and the meat they will prepare for judging. This year, the competition will be for the best chicken wing. The kids are encouraged to use their creativity in their cooking method, seasoning and presentation for judging. All contestants will bring their own cooking utensils, cooking supplies and seasonings.

There are two age levels to compete in: the Mini Pit Masters, ages 6-10, and Junior Pit Masters, ages 11-15. Each child is required to have an adult supervise their activities during the contest and may assist with lighting fires, handling knives, etc., but cannot help with the actual food preparation or cooking. Each age level only has 6 spots available and they are already starting to fill up. Top cooks in each category will receive a $50 cash prize and an Exclusive Cabbage Patch® from BabyLand General® Hospital. Second place in each category will also take home a $25 cash prize. All participants will receive a commemorative Hillbilly Hog BBQ Throwdown souvenir.

In addition to the Kid’s Q, the Throwdown will feature a professional KCBS competition including several teams featured on popular BBQ shows, a “King of the Grill” amateur contest for the non-professional BBQ enthusiasts, entertainment, food vendors, arts & crafts and more fun for the kids at BabyLand General® Hospital and in the Piglet Playland.

Parents or kids interested in the Kid’s Q can get more information, including the official rules and application by visiting the Throwdown’s website at hillbillyhogbbq.com and clicking on “Participant Forms & Info” tab. Additionally, they can contact Heather Sinyard at 706-809-0139 or heather@hillbillyhogbbq.com.
