Saturday, 18. November 2017, US, The BMO Harris Magnificent Mile Lights Festival

The BMO Harris Bank Magnificent Mile Lights Festival returns this year for the kick-off celebration of the holiday season!

The festival promises TWO days of free, family-friendly activities. The fun begins at Lights Festival Lane on Friday afternoon, November 17 at 4:00PM and continues throughout the day on Saturday.

The celebration culminates in an evening tree-lighting parade on Saturday evening, November 18, which has become a beloved tradition in Chicago and across the nation via a one-hour television broadcast.

The parade steps off at 5:30 PM at Oak Street & N. Michigan Avenue, traveling south on Michigan Avenue to Wacker Drive. Grand marshals Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse from Walt Disney World illuminate more than one million lights on 250 trees along the route!

The Lights Festival draws to a grand conclusion with a spectacular fireworks display over the Chicago River at Michigan Avenue and Wacker Drive.
