Governor and first lady to host trick-or-treaters at the Governor's Residence

For the seventh consecutive year, Governor Mitch Daniels and First Lady Cheri Daniels will host trick-or-treaters at the Governor's Residence from 6 to 8 p.m. on Halloween night (Monday, Oct. 31).

The governor and first lady will pass out assorted candy provided by four Indiana businesses. Donations include chocolate bars and pecan caramels from DeBrand Fine Chocolates of Fort Wayne; chocolate bars from Good’s Candy Shop of Anderson; chocolate-dipped pretzel twists from Schimpff’s Confectionery of Jeffersonville; and candy corn and fruit jells from Zachary Confections of Frankfort. The first 200 trick-or-treaters also will receive jump ropes from Project 18 and Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent.

“Welcoming young Hoosiers to the Governor’s Residence on Halloween has become one of my favorite traditions,” said First Lady Cheri Daniels. “We especially appreciate the generosity of the Indiana companies that made donations for our treat bags and costumes.”

The governor, first lady and staff members will dress as characters from The Addams Family in costumes provided by Landes Costumes by Rachel of Indianapolis. Previous costume themes have been The Wizard of Oz, Pirates of the Caribbean, the Indianapolis 500, the 1950’s, Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan.

The Governor’s Residence is located at 4750 North Meridian Street in Indianapolis.
