With the flip of a switch Saturday night, Greene Square will light up in holiday style. The city’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony begins at 5:30 p.m., but more family-friendly festivities get underway even earlier. Children’s activities launch at the Public Library at 4 p.m., then continue with a story time in the park at 5 p.m., followed by music from the Sweet Adelines. Admission is free, but in the spirit of the season, the Cedar Rapids Parks & Recreation Department will be collecting donations of new, unwrapped toys and books for Toys for Tots.
