JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – It will begin to look a lot like Christmas Monday in Jefferson City.

The Missouri Governor’s Mansion Christmas Tree arrived between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. Monday. The tree’s arrival shut down a portion of Madison Street. The tree will be on display on Governor Mike Parson’s lawn.

This year’s tree was donated by a Columbia, Missouri couple because it was growing way too big for their lawn.

The tree lighting ceremony is Friday at 6 p.m.
