(KGTV) — A fan-favorite parade of lights, music, and dancing is returning to Disneyland for a limited encore run this summer.

Disneyland's Main Street Electrical Parade will run from Aug. 2 to Sept. 30, bringing half a million lights and "electro-syntho-magnetic" music to the park.

The parade combines lights and music to feature characters from "Peter Pan," "Alice in Wonderland," and a slew of other Disney classics.

Disneyland debuted the parade on June 17, 1972, and ended its first run in 1996, before moving it to Disney California Adventure Park from 2001 to 2010.

The parade is another attraction fans will want to check out this summer, as new rides debut at California Adventure's Pixar Pier and the park opens its "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" land to guests without reservations.

Disneyland passholders can also get a special 1-Day Park Hopper ticket for a friend for $99 this summer.
