Magnificent Mile Lights Festival 2015

The BMO Harris Magnificent Mile Lights Festival

In 12 short days from today, Mickey & Minnie will once again be “flipping the switch” to turn on the lights up and down Michigan Avenue.  It is an amazing Chicago tradition that families enjoy each and every year.  We see the workers already furiously trimming trees, stringing lights, and changing out the flower beds on the Magnificent Mile, readying for November 21st!

On the way to the parade, be sure walk down Erie, in front of the Driehaus Museum. Beginning at 1 p.m. the Festive Singers will be performing on our front porch, singing carols in beautiful Dickensian period attire. The event is free and we invite you to come sing a long with us! Read more.

We hope you enjoy this kick-off to the holidays, and be sure to visit the Driehaus Museum after November 16 to view the Mansion beautifully decorated for the season!
