LAKEWOOD, Ohio — Starting Saturday, LakewoodAlive will host multiple events for the holiday season including a mini-parade and a virtual lighting ceremony.

The second event, which is the lighting ceremony, is at 7 p.m. Santa, the Grinch, Buddy the Elf and Mayor Meghan George will flip the switch to light up the city.
