ST. PAUL-The 2016 Holiday Season at the Minnesota Governor's Residence will kick-off the evening of Dec. 1, with festive holiday lighting of the outdoor garland and tree. The residence will be open for public tours on Tuesdays, Dec. 6 and 20, from 11 a.m to 1 p.m. each day. There will also be an evening tour on Tuesday, Dec. 13 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. No reservations are required as the tours will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Holiday tours are open-house style, and typically last 20-30 minutes. During the tours, volunteers from the Women's Auxiliary of the Minnesota Historical Society will be on-hand to answer questions in each room on the first floor and lower level of the residence. The 1006 Summit Avenue Society will also offer a selection of merchandise available for purchase. Proceeds from these sales will help to support the historic residence.

Each tour will feature a live performance from local musicians, including the Robbinsdale Armstrong Chamber Singers on Dec. 6, pianist Paulette Day on Dec. 13, and the South St. Paul Secondary Acapella Singers on Dec. 20.

The Governor's Residence is a collection site for Second Harvest Heartland, the Midwest's largest hunger relief program, and will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items throughout the Holiday Season. All Minnesotans who take a Holiday tour of the Residence are welcome to offer a donation to this important cause.
