Sweet summer rain is cool, but not as cool as McKinney’s entertainment scene. Rain or shine, there are plenty of ways to enjoy ourselves this weekend. Counting down, here are my fave five ways to pass a super cool time. Enjoy!

5. McKinney Summer Musical’s Footloose, The Musical (Friday, July 18 – Sunday, July 20)

Now in it’s final week, don’t miss your opportunity to see the McKinney Summer Musical’s rendition of Footloose, the Musical. Grab your tickets now to enjoy a toe-tapping good time. This stage adaptation brings to life one of our favorite movie musicals, the story of young Ren’s move from Chicago to a small farming town that bans dancing. The production features both MSM alumns, as well as new cast members and is under the management of managing director Kevyn Robertson, director Erin Crossley, vocal coach Noelle Chesney, music director Steve Garms and choreographer Shelby Stanley.Footloose

McKinney Summer Musicals provides high quality, family-oriented musical theatre, and promotes, improves and sustains the fine arts in the McKinney community.

Final weekend performances of Footloose will be present July 18-20 at McKinney Boyd High School Theatre. Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. on July 18-19, with a 2 p.m. matinee on July 20.

Footloose tickets are $25 for adults, $20 per person for groups of 10 or more and $10 for students with ID and children. Tickets can be purchased at McKinneySummerMusicals.com, McKinney Office Supply and at the McKinney Chamber of Commerce.

ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid4. Friday Night Flicks at MPAC presents Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid (Friday, July 18 8 p.m. – 10 p.m. ) 

Grab your favorite partner in crime and head on down to MPAC’s Courtroom Theater on Friday, July 18, to enjoy the cult classic, Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid. Thanks to the nice folks at Pat Lobb’s Toyota of McKinney, we can once again ride with Hole-In-The-Wall gang as they flee to Bolivia in an effort to escape the long arm of the law. Grab your tickets here.


3. It’s Third Monday Weekend So Shop Till You Drop (Friday, July 18 – Sunday, July 20)old-red-lumberyard-710x440

You might want to keep a weather-eye out, and you certainly want to dress accordingly, but whatever you do, do not miss the best weekend of the month to shop in McKinney, Texas! Be sure to check out The Old Red Lumberyard and Third Monday Trades Day. At ORLY market (Friday and Saturday only), be on the look out and check out the groovy treasures at Feather’s and Fluff.

IMG_6564Another fun stop between ORLY and TMTD is Western Metal Vintage Collectibles. You kind of have to be in ‘the know’ to find this treasure trove of metal signs, letters, street signs, and more. Find their four (yes, four!) large storage units snuggled behind the northeast corner of the historic downtown square at 203 N. Chestnut St. on the northwest corner of Virginia and Chestnut streets. Bonus, if it’s raining, they also have a booth inside the Antique Company Mall, so no excuses! Treasure hunt to your heart’s content, y’all!

2. Get Creative at Art On The Veranda (Friday, July 18 and Saturday, July 19) byzantine-bracelet-300x225

Located at 105 W. Louisiana St., Art On The Veranda is the place to be to learn all manner of fun things. On Friday, July 18, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., learn the art of knotting fresh water pearls and french wire into a beautiful bracelet. On Saturday, July 19, from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., create a gorgeous sterling silver Byzantine bracelet to wear home. For more information on these and other artful learning adventures, click here.

1. Roots Revival at McKinney Performing Arts Center (Saturday, July 19 8 p.m. – 10 p.m.) 


“Good story, great music, and the art of community.”

Oh, it’s a shindig, y’all! If you don’t do anything else this weekend, do this! Hosted by singer-songwriter John Christopher Davis, this Saturday night musical throw-down, reminiscent of Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry, brings the joy of music, uber-talented musicians and the love of community to the heart of downtown McKinney.

CrystalYatesWhen describing this event, according to the McKinney Performing Arts Center, “Life is a journey of discovering the art of living. The Roots Revival takes us to that road, celebrating the artists who have honed their stories into songs that celebrate this journey we all share.”

The show opens with John Christopher Davis and the Roots Revival Band, followed by Nashville’s Mike Farris and The McGuire Sister. Local favorite and national Texaco Country Showdown winner, Crystal Yates, rounds out the bill.Mike Farris150x208
