Home for the Holidays is the best way to start your Christmas celebration. The weekend after Thanksgiving in Historic Downtown McKinney features non-stop family activities, entertainment and food galore.  Plus a chance to finish all that holiday shopping in one place with more than 100 boutiques, art galleries, apparel, gift and antique shops.  It's a new spin on an old favorite with horse-drawn carriages, traveling carolers, visits with Santa Claus, a Christmas tree lighting ceremony and activities for all ages.

The festival's hours are Friday, November 23, 2018 from 10am-8pm; Saturday, November 24, 2018 from 10am-8pm;  and Sunday, November 25, 2018 from 12-5pm.
