It's Halloween at the White House
05:39 PM EDT
Watch the White House get a Halloween makeover here.
Something spooky is happening at the White House. The grounds are covered in pumpkins, gourds, and cobwebs, and on Saturday, the North Portico will be lit orange for the evening. The President and Mrs. Obama will welcome trick-or-treaters from local schools, and children from military families are invited to attend a special Halloween party inside the White House.
Trick-or-treaters will receive specially prepared treats that include a box of White House M&Ms, a White House sweet dough butter cookie baked by the White House Pastry Chef, and a serving of dried fruit.
