It’s trick-or-treat time…

It's trick-or-treat time, and among those handing out the treats are Gov. Butch Otter and First Lady Lori Otter, who, dressed in real firefighter outfits, are dispensing candy, books and toothbrushes to costumed kids on the Statehouse steps. Otter recalled visiting Idaho firefighters on the fire lines during this year's tough wildfire season. “Those guys did such a great job, they worked so hard, spent a lot of time away from their families,” he said. “We thought, 'Let's honor them.'” Then, looking around, he added, “I hope they think this is honoring them, and not just, 'Who's that idiot with the Pulaski?'”

The Statehouse trick-or-treat runs until 6:30 p.m.; meanwhile, things are gearing up on Boise's Harrison Boulevard, which is Halloween Central in this town, from the elaborate decorations to the throngs of young trick-or-treaters. There are lots and lots and lots of jack-o-lanterns…

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter and First Lady Lori Otter are inviting kids and their families to come trick-or-treating on the front steps of the state Capitol today, from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. It's the second annual event, at which the Otters will hand out candy donated by Walmart and toothbrushes from the Idaho Dental Association (as long as supplies last), along with the first lady's children's book, “Ida Visits the Capitol.” Last year, both the governor and first lady were in costume for the event, she as Snow White and he as a cowboy; their costumes this year reportedly will have a sports theme.
