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 22, 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. The parade is broadcast on ABC7 Chicago and aired in more than 90% of the nation during the holiday season, with repeat airings in multiple markets.
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.
