CHICAGO (WLS) -- The BMO Harris Bank Magnificent Mile Lights Festival always brings the stars for the holiday season. For the parade on November 18, 2017, Disney Channel star from the show "Andi Mack", Asher Angel will join the fun. He plays "Jonah Beck" in the hit coming-of-age show. Asher Angel visited the ABC 7 State Street Studios to talk about the upcoming parade and his hit show.
The parade begins at 5:30 p.m. when Mickey & Minnie Mouse illuminate 1 million lights along North Michigan Avenue. They'll be followed by other classic characters from Walt Disney World Resort, including Woody and Jessie from Toy Story; and more than 40 magnificent floats, helium-filled balloons, and six marching bands from across the country.
Santa Claus soars down the route on a float from Walgreen's to officially signal the start of the holiday season.
