On Friday, the office of First Lady Melania Trump made an announcement concerning President Trump and the First Lady. They have great big plans for Halloween, an event for children of 20 schools as well as for military families.
The statement released on Friday said, “On Monday, October 30, 2017, the White House will open the South Lawn to ghosts and goblins of all ages.”
To explain in more detail, the White House will be welcoming both parents and children from schools in Maryland, Virginia, as well as the District of Columbia for trick-or-treat on the South Lawn.
The First Family will hand out presidential labeled M&M’s and Halloween-themed cookies, that are specially prepared by the White House pastry kitchen.
Across the lawn of the White House, children will be able to visit and trick-or-treat with NASA officials, Secret Service Agents, National Park Service Officers, FEMA personnel, as well as members of the Education Department.
The statement also said that “During this event, trick-or-treaters will enjoy seeing the South Portico decorated in spider webs, creating a festive look and feel. There will also be bats and orange pumpkins with profiles of past presidents,” before explaining how the scenery will be mysterious, with fog in the air, and “the trees and south facade will be lit with different colors throughout the night.”
The First Lady brought her A-game for this event. We never heard of such an amazing event for Halloween by the First Lady before her.
