The McKinney Main Street Board invites you to Deck The Halls for Dickens from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 25 at MPAC.

The special event, which will feature food, drink, live music and merriment, will raise much-needed funds for Dickens of a Christmas and other events in Historic Downtown McKinney.

Mother Nature was not kind during Oktoberfest in McKinney, which usually raises a significant amount of money to fund Dickens of a Christmas. The pouring rain kept the crowds away at Oktoberfest, so Deck The Halls for Dickens on Oct. 25 seeks to raise funds to benefit the upcoming Dickens of a Christmas holiday festival in McKinney.

Deck The Halls for Dickens will feature music from Austin Cunningham, the Buster Brown Band and the Maylee Thomas Band. Tickets are $25 per person.

There will also be an auction and a holiday wreath raffle. Sponsorships and in-kind contributions are encouraged.
