Pirate Bo Obama! White House throws a spooktacular Halloween

The White House decked out statues of first dogs Sunny, left, dressed as a sunflower, and Bo, right, dressed as pirate, in front of the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden on Thursday.

The White House pulled out all the stops for 5,000 trick-or-treaters celebrating Halloween Thursday.

There was sheer awesomeness, like Pirate Bo and Sunflower Sunny, and only one offering worthy of an egging: Dried fruit was included among the goodies. But luckily, it was sandwiched among M&Ms, jelly beans, Reese’s and orange-iced cookies baked by White House pastry chef Bill Yosses and his team.

The annual event is held for military families and area schools. 

The first couple hands out treats to the cute kiddos. We just can't stop looking at that banana lady.
