McKINNEY, TX -- Celebrate Independence Day in McKinney with our annual Red, White and BOOM! event. This year, festivities will be modified to support social distancing and safety precautions.

Grab your patriotic gear and be ready to wave your American flag, the fun starts in Historic Downtown McKinney at 9 a.m. with a drive-thru hometown parade. It'll be in reverse this year as the floats are stationary and the viewers will drive through to admire the sights of the patriotic themed and decorated floats, cars, antique tractors, and bands. The Yankee Doodle Carnival and classic car show are canceled this year.

In the evening, join us at the McKinney Craig Ranch Soccer Complex, 6375 Collin McKinney Pkwy., for a fireworks show. The gates will open at 8:30 p.m. and the show will begin at 9:30. Families are welcome to walk or drive. Parking is limited. More the very latest information and any changes -- click this link.
