Celebrate the holidays with a Lights Show at the Magnificent MileThe holidays don't officially kick off until we ring in celebrations at the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival. The winter holiday countdown is finally here with news that the BMO Harris Bank Magnificent Mile Lights Festival is scheduled for this Saturday, November 23. The Magnificent Mile will be ablaze in holiday glory as fireworks, a tree-lighting parade, holiday shopping, live musical performances and family activities celebrate the nation's most fabulous lights show. From family friendly activities at the Lights Festival Lane, including activities from local vendors - like a Community Art Project or sweet treats from Garrett Popcorn Shops - to great discounts from local vendors like featured hotels, restaurants, retailers and some of Chicago's signature attractions, there shouldn't be any excuse to miss this event.
Even Mickey and Minnie Mouse will be traveling all the way from Walt Disney World's Florida resort to plug-in the Magnificent Mile's tree during the lighting ceremony. Disney's favorite characters will be joined by ABC7 Chicago, Brookfield Zoo, Chicago Trolley & Double Decker Co., among others, to light up Chicago's sky. As you're entertained with holiday shopping, delectable dining and discounts galore, enjoy live tunes from performers including Bad Boy/ Interscope recording artist Megan Nicole, the Radio Disney Road Crew, and Deborah Gibson. Before you close your eyes for the night, be sure to catch the evening's closing ceremony spectacle - a fireworks show over the Chicago River. There truly is no better way to kick off the holiday season with November's BMO Harris Bank Magnificent Mile Lights Festival!
