Governor Tom Corbett is taking on a big lighting job in Harrisburg.

The governor and his family hit the switch on the state Capitol Christmas Tree about an hour ago.

This is the first time the Christmas Tree Lighting has been held outside since the 1980s.

The event also featured high school carolers and a speech from the governor.
