Get ready to experience lavishly re-created period décor, an impressive array of live holiday music and captivating storytellers during special “Christmas Memories” events happening on two upcoming Saturdays (December 7 & 14) at the majestic Governor’s Mansion State Historic Park.
Surrounded by docents in period costume, Mansion visitors will be transported back in time to the very place where thirteen of California’s early governors and their families lived, spent Christmas seasons and shared holiday traditions. In fact, then-Governor Edmund G. Brown and his family were the last first-family to celebrate Christmas in the stately Mansion. To add to the festive activities, Mr. and Mrs. Claus will make special visits to the Mansion to meet excited little ones and be available for holiday photographs. Plus, Mansion visitors can take the festive opportunity to visit the newly restored third floor recently opened to the public for the first time ever.
