WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump marked Halloween at the White House by handing out candy to kids at a festive event on the South Lawn.

The couple appeared Sunday at the Halloween event, passing out White House Hershey bars and Twizzlers to children dressed as superheros, astronauts, and princesses. The South Portico was decorated with pumpkins, hay bales, and cornstalks, as a military band played spooky music.

Trump and the first lady chatted and posed for photos with the kids as they distributed treats from wicker baskets.

The White House said the event was attended by military families and local children.
