RALEIGH, N.C. -

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

The ceremonybegan at 5 p.m. with the lighting of luminaries and performances by local musicians.

McCrory was on the south grounds of the Capitol around at 6:15 p.m. to light the 24-foot tree from Peak Farms near Jefferson.

"Merry Christmas North Carolina," McCrory said after the lighting. "Come on over to the executive mansion."

After the lighting, McCrory invited the public to 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 are also asking visitors to bring donations of food, blankets, towels, toys and treats for North Carolina's rural animal shelters.
