SALT LAKE CITY — The holidays have returned to the Utah State Capitol.

On Sunday, Governor Spencer Cox and Lt. Governor Deidre Henderson helped light a menorah commemorating the first night of Hanukkah. Then on Monday, the two-story Christmas tree went up in the rotunda, outside the Senate chambers.

The Capitol Preservation Board, which oversees the grounds, said concerts will be performed all month long from visiting school and church groups. Here's a schedule of events with more likely to be added later:
