A Flip-the-Switch party will be held on Friday, November 16 during which the tree lights will be turned on at 5pm. The party will kick off the holiday season Downtown and is free and open to the public. Entertainment will include caroling by Downtown Elementary School, music by the River City Concert Band Brass Ensemble, free hot chocolate and hot cider for attendees, and special guest appearances.
