The parade is at 6 p.m. Look for members of the ABC 7 Eyewitness News team. Ron Magers, Kathy Brock, Judy Hsu and Ben Bradley will be spreading good cheer as they ride atop ABC 7 Chicago's whimsical float during the parade.

The parade will also be broadcast live starting at 6 p.m. on ABC 7 Chicago. The hour-long special, showcasing the country's largest evening holiday celebration, will be co-hosted by ABC 7's Cheryl Burton, Alan Krashesky, Janet Davies and Stacey Baca.

Among the festival performers are singer/ songwriter Debbie Gibson and Radio Disney star and Interscope recording artist Megan Nicole. They came into our ABC 7 Eyewitness News studio ahead of their performances on Saturday morning. (By the way, Gibson is currently a celebrity judge on ABC's new music competition "Sing Your Face Off.")
