HARTFORD — Whose house? Your house. At least that’s the messages Connecticut governors have tried to convey by having an open house at the governor’s residence.
Beginning this Friday, Gov. M. Jodi Rell will continue the tradition by inviting the public to visit the Holiday Open House at the Governor’s Residence, 990 Prospect Avenue in Hartford.
The Open House runs from:
- 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, December 3
- 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, December 4
- 12:00 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, December 5
Rell said this free open house gives families from across the state the opportunity to see the residence decorated for the holidays.
The tour will be given by about 35 volunteers, some whom have volunteered for over 20 years.
Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus will be handing out candy canes to children on Friday and Sunday. There will also be live entertainment provided by area businesses and schools.
