This is a 2-day activity for families and friends, which leads up to the prominent tree-lighting parade located in Michigan Avenue. Most of the residents in this place consider this spectacular event as an official kickout celebration for the holidays.
This magnificent festival of lights Chicago is an event that is being celebrated every year on Saturday before Thanksgiving. There are an estimated 1 million lights on the 200 trees that brighten up Michigan Avenue in Chicago.
It is considered the 3rd largest parade in the United States based on the festival chair. Although there was no live parade this year, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ABC 7 conducted an hour of Disney surprises, stimulating performances, and some magical moments covered with stunning illumination of trees that line the Magnificent Mile of Chicago. The holiday special aired on ABC 7 last November 22 from 6:00 -7:00 pm.
Perhaps, you can still personally witness the extravagant performances and appearances of the parade next year if ever the situation warrants.
