Ring in the holiday shopping season at this two-day festival that takes place on Michigan Avenue. The fun begins on Friday, November 22, when Pioneer Court hosts family-friendly activities (including a visit from Santa Claus) and treats from Garrett Popcorn, Frango and Eli’s Cheesecake. On Saturday, November 23, stores on the Magnificent Mile will offer special experiences and offers throughout the day, before Michigan Avenue hosts a two-hour tree-lighting parade led by Grand Marshals Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, which sets off from Oak Street at 5:30pm. Head to the Chicago River by 6:55pm to catch the spectacular fireworks display that closes out the evening.
