Join us for McKinney's 39th annual Home for the Holidays festival, held in the center of McKinney's warm and vibrant historic downtown on Thanksgiving weekend! Santa and his helpers have been hard at work making sure that Home for the Holidays is fun for the entire family. To kick off the festivities, we invite you to watch McKinney's Christmas Tree Lighting immediately followed by live entertainment by Ricki Derek and the Ho, Ho, Ho Orchestra. To keep the fun times rolling, be sure to stop by our family-friendly attractions, such as our petting zoo, carnival, and visits with Santa himself! Don't forget to show your support at some of Downtown McKinney's independently owned boutiques on Small Business Saturday. Whether you are reliving old traditions or making new ones, we are always excited to have you here in Downtown McKinney for some historic good times!
