Governor's Mansion in Pierre to welcome trick-or-treaters on Halloween


PIERRE, South Dakota — The Governor's Mansion in Pierre will once again welcome trick-or-treaters on Halloween.

Children are invited to stop by the mansion from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday. Between 1,500 and 2,000 pieces of candy will be given out.

Handing out Halloween treats at the Governor's Mansion is a long-standing tradition. Gov. Dennis Daugaard and first lady Linda Daugaard have previously dressed up as President Lincoln and his wife first lady Mary Todd Lincoln, as well as characters from The Phantom of the Opera.

The Daugaards are encouraging children and parents across South Dakota to follow Halloween safety tips, including trick-or-treating during daylight or with a flashlight and inspecting candy before pieces are eaten.
