Obama si prepara per Halloween

Halloween at the White House
On Saturday, October 29, President and Mrs. Obama will welcome local children to trick-or-treat at the North Portico of the White House, which will be lit orange for the occasion.
The trick-or-treaters are elementary students from local schools in the Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia areas as well as children from the Boys and Girls Club of America and children from military families. In addition, children from military families have been invited to attend a special Halloween party inside the People’s House.
