Pirates occupy Wash. governor’s mansion for Halloween
OLYMPIA — Trick-or-treaters arriving at the governor’s mansion will be greeted by pirates.
Gov. Jay Inslee and his wife, Trudi, chose a pirate’s theme for Halloween, and trick-or-treaters are invited to come to the mansion, next to the Capitol, on Thursday between 6 and 7:30 p.m.
The governor will also give out 10 chocolate bars that will contain “golden” tickets for a special reception at the mansion that will be held at a later date.
In previous years, Inslee’s predecessor, Gov. Chris Gregoire, and her husband dressed up as characters from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Charlotte’s Web, Happy Feet, Dora the Explorer, Toy Story and The Adams Family.
