Magnificent Mile Lights Festival

The official start of the winter holiday season in Chicago is signalled by the lighting of more than a million white lights along the Magnificent Mile. It occurs during a procession of Micky Mouse and his Disney friends, concluding with a spectacular fireworks show over the Chicago River. The whole winter wonderland weekend gears towards the holiday season, with special offers and family entertainment. Numerous stages have live music while the grand tree-lighting ceremony is one of the highlights. It's an unmissable and exuberant November display in Chicago.
