HARTFORD--Welcome to the governor's house!

This weekend, Gov. Dan Malloy will open the official governor's residence, located at 990 Prospect Ave. in Hartford, to all for a holiday spectacular.

"Cathy and I love holding this holiday open house each year because it gives us an opportunity to showcase not only our own family's personal collection of Christmas decorations, but also the seasonal agricultural decorations that have been generously donated by Connecticut growers and small businesses," Malloy said.  "We look forward to continuing this longstanding Connecticut tradition, and encourage everyone to visit and join us in the holiday spirit."

It is free to enter and tickets aren't needed for the tours, but donations for Operation Elf will be accepted. Operation Elf helps soldiers families with support during the holiday season.

The residence will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, and 10 to 2 p.m. Sunday, with live music, Santa, decorations and more on display. For more information, click here, and check out the schedule of events below:
