Home for the Holidays in Mckinney! See you there!

Downtown McKinneys premier festival, the 29th annual Dickens of a Christmas…Home for the Holidays is right around the corner.  An old fashioned Christmas festival with horse drawn carriages, strolling carolers, visits with Santa Claus, the Christmas tree lighting and activities for all ages.  Seasonal music, food and childrens activities provided by local organizations will take center stage during the event.

The event will be held for (3) days (November 27, 28 and 29, 2009).  This festive event will launch on Friday, November 27 with an “Earlier than the Bird” shopping extravaganza followed by festive activities throughout the day leading up to a message from our Mayor, the lighting of the tree and candlelight shopping until 8:00 p.m. Periodically, during the month of December, the shops in downtown McKinney will stay open for extended hours so that customers have a chance to finish all of that holiday shopping in one place with over 100 boutiques, art galleries, bookstores, apparel, gifts and exquisite antiques. Consumers can find the unique and special things that they won’t find anywhere else in downtownMcKinney.   This magical event is free to the public and parking and free shuttle service will be provided.

McKinney Main Street and supporting sponsors will support the local economy by providing festive and interactive activities throughout the busiest shopping weekend of the year, which will in turn promote the heritage of our wonderful city.
