If you’re willing to take the roughly two-hour drive, the grounds of the Governor’s Residence in Harrisburg will be open to the public this Sunday.

The Governor’s Residence will be hosting Second Sunday: Creatures of the Garden from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The event will feature the Pennsylvania Game Commission, Bee Keepers Association, Humane Society of Harrisburg and Zoo America.

Organizers said adoptable dogs, baby goats, wool spinning demonstrations and animals native to Pennsylvania will be at the free, family friendly event.

Visitors are asked to not bring large bags for security reasons.

The address for the Governor’s Residence is 2035 North Front Street, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania 17102.

Free parking will be allowed along 2nd Street and in the parking lot 2nd and Maclay streets.

The Governor’s Residence was built in the 1960s and is the official residence of the governor. However, Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf resides in nearby York County and travels between his home and Harrisburg.
