Hundreds of people gathered at the Bidwell Mansion today in Chico to celebrate their Christmas open house. The Chico Women's Club started the annual tradition 52 years ago. On the first Sunday of every December, more than 500 people attend the event. Today people enjoyed Christmas carols performed by different local choirs. Four different local organizations collaborate to make the event happen. The event coordinator says they’re always looking for local talent to sing in the event each year.
