White House to Host Exclusive Garden Tour for Select Instagram Users

, , , , , ,


As the White House opens its gardens and grounds to the public for fall tours, some Instagram users will get an exclusive visit this weekend.

Selected Instagrammers will have the chance on Sunday to tour the grounds and track their excursion on social media, the White House announced Monday.

The tour is intended specifically for the White House’s Instagram followers. To apply for a spot in the meet-up, applicants must follow either @WhiteHouse or @MichelleObama on Instagram and fill out a short form on the White House’s website.

Those chosen or put on the wait list will be emailed by Wednesday. In the meantime, applicants are encouraged to post their favorite nature and garden photos on Instagram with the hashtag #WHInstaMeet. The same hashtag will be used on the day of the tour, so all Instagram users can virtually follow along.

So far, more than 400 photos have been tagged on Instagram with #WHInstaMeet.

While the spots in Sunday’s White House Instagram tour are available through application only, the garden is free and open to the public during its fall tour season. Visitors must have tickets, which are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
