CHICAGO – More than one million people will travel to Chicago’s Magnificent Mile to begin their holidays during the 21st annual BMO Harris Bank Magnificent Mile Lights Festival on Saturday, November 17, 2012. Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse from the Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida will lead a magical evening lighting parade down The Magnificent Mile, illuminating more than one million lights on 200 trees along North Michigan Avenue.
The beloved holiday tradition signals the beginning of the season for the nation with an action-packed weekend throughout The Magnificent Mile district. On November 17, North Michigan Avenue is the setting for a host of holiday fun. Starting at 11 am, families are invited to enjoy holiday-themed activities in Lights Festival Lane (Pioneer Court, 401 N. Michigan Avenue) featuring booths from Chicago’s finest including John Hancock Observatory, Garrett Popcorn Shops, The Eli’s Cheesecake Company, BMO Harris Bank and more. Radio Disney AM 1300 Chicago will be on-site hosting a family-friendly concert featuring Olivia Holt, star of Disney XD’s hit series “Kickin’ It” and the Disney Channel Original Movie “Girl Vs. Monster,” who will open for singer-songwriter Shane Harper, star of Disney Channel’s Emmy Award-nominated “Good Luck Charlie.” Other top musical performers scheduled to take the BMO Harris Bank Stage during the afternoon’s live concert line-up include Colton Dixon, American Idol Season 11 finalist; R5, the fastest-rising band on the pop-rock scene; and Justin Roberts and the Not Ready for Naptime Players, the Grammy-nominated family music group.
The day’s activities lead up to the much-anticipated lighting parade, the country’s largest evening holiday celebration, beginning at 5:30 pm. Grand marshals Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will appear together for the third year in a row on an awe-inspiring new float as they lead more than 40 magnificent floats, helium-filled balloons, classic characters from the Walt Disney World® Resort, lively marching bands from across the country and musical performances from top artists including Bella Thorne, star of Disney Channel’s “Shake It Up.”
