    The 19th annual Magnificent Mile Lights Festival kicked off Saturday morning along Michigan Avenue.

     
    Holiday revelers enjoyed live music beginning at 11 a.m.
     
    But the real party started at 5 p.m., when Mickey Mouse and company made their way down the famous thoroughfare and officially kicked off the holiday season.
     
    The event lasted until 6:55 p.m., when organizers set off fireworks along the river. Area shops got into the action, of course, with extended shopping until 10 p.m.
     
    In between, there were plenty of Disney characters and a performance by American Idol finalist Crystal Bowersox.
