The BMO Harris Bank Magnificent Mile Lights Festival

The 28th Annual BMO Harris Bank Magnificent Mile Lights Festival rings in the 2019 holiday season with two days of free, family-friendly activities in Chicago. The celebration culminates in an evening tree-lighting parade along North Michigan Avenue.

On Saturday evening, November 23, Grand Marshals Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse from Walt Disney World® lead the parade and light more than one million tree lights along the route – from Oak Street to the Chicago River.

The Lights Festival concludes with a fantastic firework display over the Chicago River.

On Sunday November 24 at 6pm, tune into ABC 7 Chicago for the parade broadcast! Want to watch the parade again? The broadcast is syndicated to more than 90% of the United States throughout the holiday season, so check your local listings!

All activities are free and open to the public. For a complete schedule of events and special holiday offers from area businesses, visit TheMagnificentMile.com.
