Premier Greg Selinger and his merry band of MLAs will be decking the halls of the Legislature Building today.

The annual open house runs from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. this afternoon, with the premier, cabinet ministers and MLAs on hand to share the holiday season with the public. Activities for children get underway at 1 p.m., with a special visit from some guy who lives at the North Pole scheduled for 1:30 p.m.

Various schools will handle the choir performances on the grand staircase, Ecole Assiniboine, Princess Margaret School, Meadows West School and Parc La Salle taking part. A flute ensemble from Nelson MacIntyre Collegiate will also perform.

To wrap things up, a choir of MLAs, led by Speaker of the house Daryl Reid, will burst into song at 3 p.m.

Those planning to attend are asked to bring a donation of a non-perishable food item or an upwrapped toy for the Christmas Cheer Board.
