HARTFORD -- Governor Ned Lamont and First Lady Annie Lamont passed out 1,200 full sized candy bars Thursday night, along with some special prizes.

Hidden in some of those Munson's chocolate bars were golden tickets to local tourist attractions, sporting events and businesses. The prizes were donated, according to the Governor's office. Four ticket-holders won a tour of the State Capitol given by the Governor himself. The candy was purchased by the Lamonts at no cost to the state. This is the Lamonts' first Halloween at the Prospect Avenue residence.

“This is our first time celebrating Halloween at the Governor’s Residence, and we figured that since we’d have hundreds of young trick-or-treaters stopping by we would use it as an opportunity to promote some of the great destinations that Connecticut has to offer,” Governor and First Lady Lamont said in a joint statement. “Check underneath your candy wrappers to see if you’ve won a prize!”

The prizes include:

  • Hartford Yard Goats – 8 tickets
  • Mark Twain House Tour – 4 passes
  • Tour of State Capitol by governor – 4 passes
  • Hartford Wolf Pack – 4 tickets
  • Wadsworth Museum – 20 passes
  • Connecticut Science Center - 4 tickets
  • UConn women’s basketball game – 4 tickets
  • UConn men’s basketball game – 4 tickets
  • Mystic Aquarium – 4 tickets
  • Lake Compounce –  4 tickets
  • Hartford Athletic – 4 tickets
  • New England Air Museum – 4 passes
  • Harriet Beecher Stowe Center – 4 passes
