A McKinney Christmas

After Thursday's Thanksgiving feast with family and friends, it will be time to embrace the joy and magic of Christmastime at Home for the Holidays - a McKinney Christmas. Every year, on the weekend after Thanksgiving, Historic Downtown McKinney is transformed into a winter wonderland with holiday entertainment, activities, food and drink, and of course holiday shopping! The weekend long celebration features a tree lighting ceremony, live entertainment, photos with Santa, and much more.

Downtown Parking and DASH

If you find yourself on the square on Saturday, don't forget that it's Small Business Saturday! There are dozens of opportunities to #shoplocal on the square and this is the perfect day to do so. While you're enjoying all of your holiday events this season, tag your photos with #bemckinney for a chance to be featured in our monthly We Are McKinney post. We're starting to feel the Christmas magic around here, and we hope your days are merry and bright!
