Gov. Pat McCrory lit the State Capitol Christmas tree Thursday evening.

The ceremony included the lighting of luminaries and performances by local musicians.

McCrory was there on the south grounds of the Capitol to light the 24-foot tree from Peak Farms near Jefferson.

After the lighting, the public could attend an open house inside the State Capitol to see trees donated by Cartner Christmas Tree Farm of Asheville that have been decorated by the N.C. Department of Agriculture with home grown fruits and vegetables.

The governor and first lady also asked visitors to bring donations of food, blankets, towels, toys and treats for North Carolina's rural animal shelters.
