What do you get when you mix a million lights and a million visitors with a side of Mickey and Minnie Mouse?
You KNOW it! It’s The 20th Annual Magnificent Mile Lights Festival® presented by BMO Harris Bank! This family-friendly day long event starts at 11am in Pioneer Court with music and activities leading up to the ceremonial lighting by Mickey and Minnie Mouse. At the conclusion of the parade, stick around for a magnificent fireworks display at 7pm right over the river.
