The annual arrival of Christmas trees at the Governor’s Mansion in Jefferson City took place Monday.

The public is invited to attend Friday’s night’s tree lighting ceremony hosted by Governor Mike Parson and First Lady Teresa Parson.

Shari Childs, the Executive Director of the Governor’s mansion, tells Missourinet  that the annual tree lighting ceremony is among the biggest events to take place at the Mansion every year.

The year’s event will feature a live nativity scene performed by a Jefferson City church on the house’s lawn.

Childs says the presentation will include live animals.

It’s followed by Candlelight Tours of interior decorations in the building’s first floor which also continue Saturday afternoon.
