It's part of 'Second Sunday' at the governor's residence, a tradition that began under the Corbett administration.

"Susan Corbett started to open up the gardens in the summertime to the public and enforcing the idea that this is a venue that belongs to all citizens of Pennsylvania," said Francis Wolf, Pennsylvania's First Lady.
