The province's annual open house will be held at the Legislative Building Saturday. 

From 1 to 3 p.m., the premier, cabinet ministers and members of the legislative assembly (MLAs) will be in their offices to welcome visitors. The offices of the Speaker of the house and the lieutenant-governor will be open to the public as well as the legislative reading room, party caucus rooms and offices, and the office of the clerk of the legislative assembly.

The tradition of music filling the halls of the building will continue with performances on the Grand Staircase by choirs from École Assiniboine, Princess Margaret School, Meadows West School, and Parc La Salle School, and the flute ensemble from Nelson McIntyre Collegiate. A choir of MLAs, led by Speaker Daryl Reid, will perform at 3 p.m.

Activities for children will be held in Room 254 from 1 to 3 p.m. and include crafts and colouring, face painting and a balloon artist. Storyteller Jamie Oliviero will be on hand from 1:15 to 1:45 p.m. and a special visit with a resident of the North Pole will take place after his arrival at the Grand Staircase at 1:30 p.m.

Complimentary festive season photos will be taken in the Rotunda from 1 to 3 p.m. and all those attending the open house are asked to bring a donation of non-perishable food or an unwrapped toy for the Christmas Cheer Board.
