Missouri Lt. Gov. Mike Kehoe visits with children as they wait in line to meet Gov. Mike Parson and Fist Lady Teresa Thursday, Oct. 31, 2019, during the Trick-or-Treating at the People's House event at the Governor's Mansion in Jefferson City. The governor and first lady invited children and families for a kid-friendly, non-scary Halloween experience as children wore their favorite costumes and get their picture taken with them in front of the mansion. Children also received goody bags during the event as well as non-candy treat bag options for children with special dietary restrictions.

It's time to pick a costume: The People's House is celebrating Halloween.

The governor and first lady are hosting the fifth annual Parson Family Fall Festival and Trick-or-Treating event from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29, at the Governor's Mansion, 100 Madison St.

The free, public outdoor event will feature vendors, children's activities and live bluegrass music. Children age 12 and younger are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes.

"We look forward to hosting our fifth annual Parson Family Fall Festival and Trick-or-Treating event at the Governor's Mansion," the Parsons said in a joint news release statement Wednesday. "This is a fun way to kick-off the fall season by celebrating with your family and friends at the People's House."

Set to the tunes of Missouri's own bluegrass performers the Kay Brothers, children will have the opportunity to play in a bounce house, get their face painted, go trick-or-treating and more.

Missouri Grown, Elderwood Kettle Corn, Missouri State Parks, Runge Nature Center, Missouri Highway Patrol, The Magic House St. Louis, Scholastics and HALs Hoppers will be among the vendors in attendance.
