This one’s for the kids.

Debby Ryan (“Jessie,” “The Suite Life on Deck”) will perform Nov. 23 at the BMO Harris Bank Magnificent Mile Lights Festival parade and then take part in a Radio Disney-sponsored meet-and-greet Nov. 24 at Navy Pier’s Family Pavilion.

Fellow Disney Channel actresses Laura Marano (“Austin and Ally”) and Grace Phipps (“Teen Beach Movie”) will also appear in the Lights Festival. Marano will take part in a meet-and-greet at the Lights Festival and Phipps will participate in a meet-and-greet Nov. 22 at the Disney Store in Orland Square Mall in Orland Park.

Bad Boy/Interscope recording artist Megan Nicole will perform during the day at the Lights Festival.  Debbie Gibson (ask your parents) will pull double-duty at the holiday event, performing during the day and at the parade at night. Mario Lopez (“Extra,” “Saved by the Bell”) will lead onlookers at the Lights Festival in what is being billed as the “Largest Holiday Carol,” on behalf of 93.9 My FM.

And for the older kids, a non Lights festival-related appearance: Janel Parrish (“Pretty Little Liars”) will be on hand for meet-and-greets at the Von Maur store in the Glen Town Center in Glenview Saturday and the Von Maur store in Yorktown Center in Lombard Sunday.
