Holiday decorations ready for viewing at Wisconsin Governor's Mansion

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) --- Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers is inviting Wisconsinites to come see holiday decorations honoring heroes and celebrating hope at the Wisconsin Governor's Mansion, better known as the Executive Residence.

This year the Executive Residence will be decorated outside for visitors to drive, bike or walk by to view the decorations safely due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The Governor's office says the decorations pay tribute to groups including healthcare workers and first-responders.

"Our goal with our decorations this year is to celebrate as many hopeful holiday traditions as possible while also providing an opportunity for all of us to reflect on the hardships and the heroes of this past year," First Lady Kathy Evers said.

Gov. Evers is encouraging Wisconsinites to enjoy the decorations safely.

"From our Tribute to our Troops tree to the Alzheimer's and Dementia Awareness trees, to the wreaths and trees provided by Wisconsin growers, the decorations at the Residence tell the stories of Wisconsinites," he said.
