Most of the guests who attended the Trumps’ first Halloween celebration at the White House were of the fun-size variety, but photographers captured a notable exception Monday afternoon.

A huge inflatable dinosaur that towered over first lady Melania Trump appeared alongside children dressed as fairies, witches, firefighters, and more.

The Trumps greeted trick-or-treaters as part of a larger Halloween event at the White House attended by about 6,000 children and adults from more than 20 area schools, as well as military and community organizations.

Trick-or-treaters took home individual gift bags containing presidential M&Ms, a home-baked cookie, and other candies.
