Celebrate Independence Day in McKinney
9 - 11 a.m. | Drive-thru Parade
9:30 p.m. | Fireworks
Join in our patriotic drive-thru parade, Saturday, July 4
This year with the limits to gatherings and the need for social distancing we are adjusting the Fourth of July parade to be a drive-thru parade. Floats will be stationary, set up in designated spots throughout the historic downtown McKinney, and guests can drive by and enjoy the floats in the safety of their cars.
The drive-thru parade lasts from 9 - 11 a.m. in historic downtown McKinney. Floats will be stationed on Louisiana and Virginia streets on the blocks between Church and Tennessee streets. Tune into 88.7 FM for live music and announcements from Mayor George Fuller and Maylee Thomas Fuller.
Enjoy professional fireworks for Red, White and BOOM! on July 4.
Launch begins at 9:30 p.m. from the McKinney Soccer Complex at Craig Ranch
Due to renewed concerns related to COVID-19, no parking or pedestrian traffic will be allowed at the Craig Ranch Soccer Complex.
This is a 20-minute show that can be seen from farther away. Better visibility means you can enjoy fireworks while maintaining social distancing in accordance with the Governor’s orders. The fireworks can be seen from up to 4 miles away from the McKinney Soccer Complex at Craig Ranch.
We encourage watching from your home or car and tuning in to 101.1 WRR FM to hear choreographed music with the fireworks!
There will be no on-site parking for the show. Cars will not be allowed to pull over on main roads. Please respect private property. Parking on residential streets is discouraged. Practice social distancing guidelines and maintain at least 6 feet between your group and other groups when viewing outside your vehicle.
Remember, other fireworks are illegal in the City of McKinney.
