White House decorated for Halloween

The White House has been covered in spider webs and fog to celebrate Halloween.

The White House will open the South Lawn to trick-or-treaters the night before Halloween and officials have decked out the residence with fake bats and pumpkins.

“During this event, trick-or-treaters will enjoy seeing the South Portico decorated in spider webs, creating a festive look and feel,” the White House said in a release.

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump will hand out cookies and other candy to trick-or-treaters, including presidential M&Ms, according to the release. {mosads}

Melania Trump shared a photo of the decorations on Instagram on Saturday.

“The People’s House @WhiteHouse is ready to celebrate #Halloween2017,” she wrote.
