McKINNEY -- Not only has a 2019 gone by in a blink of an eye, but we’re also saying goodbye to decade. Can you believe it?! The roaring ‘20s are back. So pop the cork off your finest champagne and take in one or two of these local events to ring in 2020.

 

Head to Downtown McKinney

There will be plenty of activity in and around Downtown McKinney on New Year’s Eve. Restaurants and bars will be a buzz with activity even if there’s not an official “party” or “event” going on.

If you’re looking for a whiskey fix, The Pub McKinney will have plenty of that along with party favors, a DJ, and a champagne toast at midnight.

The Lounge at Rick’s Chophouse will be open with live music from Buzz Andrews as the countdown to 2020 nears an end.

If wine is what you prefer, you’ll find a lot of that at Lone Star Wine Cellars where they will be ringing in the new year live music and a complimentary toast.

A few blocks over you’ll find good pizza, good music, and free champagne at Cadillac Pizza Pub.

“We're throwing a party and you're invited! For no additional fee or reservation, we're welcoming everyone to join us,” they say on their event page.

Have a laugh as you say hello to 2020 at The Comedy Arena. There’s an early show for the whole family that begins at 8:00 p.m. and there’s a 21+ show that starts at 10:30 p.m.

 

Other events around town

Celebrate with the family at Stonebridge Ranch Country Club where they’ll have a DJ, photo booth, balloon drop and more. 

Another party option is at Harry’s where you can bring back the roaring 20s.

 

Bottom line

There’s no shortage of options to celebrate 2020 in McKinney. From free champagne toasts to live music and more, there’s something for everyone. For other events as they come in, check back here.

We’ll see you out there! Cheers to 2020!
