Governor's Halloween theme unveiled

Gov. Mitch Daniels and First Lady Cheri Daniels will don Sonny and Cher costumes for the last Halloween night at the residence.

They will host trick-or-treaters for the eighth and final year Wednesday night.

The theme will be "Legends of Rock and Roll," and staff members will dress as other music icons.

Previous costume themes have been The Addams Family, The Wizard of Oz, Pirates of the Caribbean, the Indianapolis 500, the 1950's, Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan.

The governor and first lady will pass out assorted candy provided by five Indiana businesses. Donations include chocolate bars from DeBrand Fine Chocolates of Fort Wayne; chocolate treats from Endangered Species Chocolate of Indianapolis; cherry candies from Good's Candy Shop of Anderson; chocolate-dipped pretzel twists from Schimpff's Confectionery of Jeffersonville; and fruit jells from Zachary Confections of Frankfort.

"I'm looking forward to welcoming the nearly 800 young Hoosiers who visit us each Halloween," said First Lady Cheri Daniels. "Once again, we're proud to feature delicious treats from Indiana businesses."
