Event Details

Red, White and BOOM! kicks off Independence Day with downtown events: a hometown parade at 10 a.m., a classic car, truck and cycle show.

This year with the limits to gatherings and the need for social distancing we are adjusting the 4th 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.


We’re looking for patriotic themed and decorated floats, cars, antique tractors and bands.


Prizes are awarded to our top entries:

  • Grand Prize
  • Second Place
  • Third Place
  • Best Classic Car
