Magnificent Mile Lights Festival Parade - 200x85The centerpiece of the day-long festival is the evening parade, and the lights on Michigan Avenue are literally illuminated block-by-block as the procession passes.  More than 1 million spectators line the parade route each year to see the lighted floats, marching bands, balloons and performing artists.  Because of the parade’s unique overall format and time considerations, the parade is limited to five or six marching bands each year.
