From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s an extended look at what’s coming up the week of April 21, 2014:

30,000 people are expected to gather on the South Lawn at the White House for the annual Easter Egg Roll.

Do something nice for your planet on Tuesday. It’s Earth Day.

The National Association of Realtors reports on sales of existing homes for March.

More interested in a new home? We get those sales figures from the Commerce Department on Wednesday.

Ebertfest gets underway in Champaign, Illinois. The annual event “celebrates films that haven’t received the recognition they deserved during their original runs.”

If you’re in Iceland you probably have time off to celebrate the first day of summer on Thursday. It’s a public holiday.

In this country it’s Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. And the good folks at the Commerce Department are scheduled to report on durable goods orders for March. Hopefully they can kick that out before their kids show up to the office.

Friday is National Arbor Day, the tree planting holiday. More good things for the planet.

And it’s a serious event with a lot of dough at stake. The National Pie Championships roll out in Orlando. Just in time for bathing suit season.
