COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster and his wife Peggy are inviting people to come to the governor’s mansion Monday evening to view Christmas decorations and listen to carols.

The open house in downtown Columbia will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m..

The Columbia Garden Club is decorating the mansion, and light refreshments will be served. Simone Bryant of Benedict College has been invited to sing Christmas carols.

Admission is free, but the governor and first lady ask guests to please bring canned goods to donate to Harvest Hope Food Bank.

Guided tours of the governor’s mansion are also available on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings over the next two weeks.
