Melania Trump is planning on throwing a White House Halloween party while kids and adults all over the US gear up for their trick or treating gala on October 31.

Expected to take place on October 28, this will mark the Trumps' third party of the kind, with invitees including military families and schoolchildren from local areas, who will attend with their parents.

The FLOTUS expects to welcome many "tiny dragons, ghouls, ghosts, witches and other fun creepy-crawly costumes", as the White House promises to create an impeccable atmosphere and an evening full of spectacular and fun surprises and events.

From passing through an enchanted forest encompassing the building's South Portico, to exploring a pumpkin trail down the East and West staircases, attractions will be aplenty, according to a White House statement.

NASA is also planning on displaying an EVA Space Suit alongside the Department of Agriculture's traction that the children will be allowed to explore.

This comes with the US Postal Service's special surprise where it "will have spooky collection boxes and a Postal truck for kiddos to see".

The biggest attraction, however, is believed to be an opportunity to check our The Beast — the Presidential Limo expected to be brought to the show by the United States Secret Service.

Providing musical entertainment for the gala will be the United States Air Force Strolling Strings band, putting up classic Halloween songs.

The Trumps' Halloween parties ever since POTUS Trump took office in 2016 mirrors the extravagant themed galas thrown by the former residents of the White House — the Obamas.

During his eight-year tenure, the 44th president and his wife — the then-first lady Michelle Obama — put up Halloween-themed decor all around the building, handed out candy to trick or treaters and also chose to not wear costumes.

The key differences between the two lie in the Trumps opting to wear formal attire for both of their previous parties, while the Obamas chose a more casual display of outfits.

While both Barrack and Michelle Obama danced to Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' with the children as the audience, Donald Trump is yet to engage in any dance routines on either of the parties to date.

Also, in 2016, the Obamas went for an 'Alice in Wonderland' theme with teacups and rabbits as decorations. For the Trumps' last party, they opted for a spookier aura with Hersheys and tweezers.
