Heads Up! Big Weekend On The Square

Just a quick note.

Plan Alternate Routes

Plan Alternate Routes

Town Square Buzz has a great article on the events on tap for this Memorial Day weekend.  Here’s a quick synopsis:

Friday  – 4 PM to 11 PM – Bike The Bricks – A really exciting event, the closed course for the bicycles will wind through the Historic District.  These are not amateur riders and they get some real speed going.  There’ll be a lot of excitement, music, and entertainment.  This is the 3rd year and it just gets better every year.

Saturday – 10 AM – Parade for Hollie Cavanagh through downtown McKinney. Starting at Davis Street, it will move north on Tennessee to Hunt Street and then back south on Kentucky. Streets will close about 9:30. Hollie will perform immediately after the parade with the Walton Stout Band and performing artist Chloe Coleman.  The city encourages supporters to bring posters to show Hollie our love.

Monday @ 9 AM – Memorial Service at Pecan Grove Cemetery – This is a very, very nice annual event.  If you want America and apple pie, this is it. Bring a chair and a flag to wave.  Troop 303 will provide water and a community lunch.  There will be music and speeches from local and state leaders.  Music starts at 9:30, the ceremony begins at 10:00, and lunch will be served at 11:30. Veterans are encouraged to wear their uniforms. There are always a lot of uniforms so, if this is your first time, don’t be shy.

Until next time,

Happy Shopping!
