The Magnificent Mile Lights Festival! 

The holiday season around the Streeterville neighborhood and Chicago’s Magnificent Mile represents the ultimate urban winter-wonderland. Whether it’s the thousands of holiday shoppers bustling up and down Michigan Avenue, the snowy walkways lining our city or the ceremonious Magnificent Mile Lights Festival held annually along Chicago’s most celebrated thoroughfare, the holiday season is truly a special time for many Chicagoans. I know you’re probably thinking, “is it time to start thinking about the holidays already!?” But the answer to that question is a definitive “YES!” This year, the 20th Annual Magnificent Mile Lights Festival will take place on Saturday, November 19th from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Recognized as the nation’s largest evening holiday event, the lighting spectacle will feature a full day of festivities that are fun for the whole family. Whether it’s live music, getting some holiday shopping out of the way, or the event’s main lighting procession led by Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, tons of activities will be available to keep everyone occupied the entire day. This year’s parade will boast more than 30 floats, tons of giant balloons, several marching bands and various celebrities and musical performers. Finally, the parade will conclude with a majestic fireworks display along the great Chicago River, capping off what should be an incredible holiday celebration in Streeterville
