FRANKFORT, Ky. – Governor and Mrs. Fletcher announced the First Dog’s winning Halloween costume at “Trick-or-Treat at the Governor’s Mansion” tonight.  During October, children across the Commonwealth were invited to participate in an online contest to choose Abby’s Halloween costume.

The contest included pictures of Abby dressed up as a pumpkin, a witch, and an angel.  With more than 1,600 total votes, the witch costume received almost half of the votes and took the glory.  Abby then donned this festive outfit tonight for hundreds of children at the annual Halloween celebration.

“The ‘Choose Abby’s Halloween Costume’ was a fun and exciting way for children to celebrate Halloween,” said First Lady Glenna Fletcher.  “The Governor and I are thrilled with the number of children that took part in this contest and came to visit us tonight.”

The picture of the winning costume can be found on Abby’s Web site at
