CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Old West Holiday is kicking off this weekend. A state historic site says it’s opening its doors to the public for some all day Holiday festivities.

“Tinsel through time” started back in 2004 when the Governor’s Mansion became a historic museum and site. This year marks the 20th year of the event that starts tomorrow morning and will go on throughout the day and is free to the public.

The Historic Governors Mansion continues to be open to the public during the virus control efforts. As the Capital city begins to decorate the streets with Christmas lights and residents homes just the same. Starting this weekend people can see how the past governor’s may have celebrated the holiday season.

The Old Governor’s Mansion located nearby the State Capital, is restored with Yuletide and preservation for a moment in time. “We come every year to see this, and it’s nice to have it restored like this and see what Christmas was like back when,” Local resident, Carol Guyer said.

During my tour of the Old Governor’s mansion the crew told Wyoming News Now, it takes a month’s time to precisely plan out the decorations to make them different from the year’s past. This year each room has an even more specific tradition toward the holiday cheer, and on your way out the door they even give you a little bit more cheer and joy.

“We get a lot of locals who come back year after year to experience the magic of Christmas with us. I think it’s important during these times to keep that up so people can have something to enjoy and something to look forward to.”
