    McKinney celebrates Fourth of July with Red, White and BOOM!
    Second-year event is free to the public, features fireworks, concerts, car show
    and veterans salute
    McKINNEY, Texas (June 15, 2009) – On July 4, McKinney brings back the popular free
    celebration of freedom, with family fun, food and entertainment. The second annual Red,
    White and BOOM! festival boasts many of the same activities that drew 40,000 people to
    events across McKinney from Historic Downtown to Craig Ranch.
    “This hometown event was extremely successful last year. In these tough economic
    times, it’s more important than ever to have fun, free events for our residents and their
    families,” said City Manager Frank Ragan. “This is truly a hometown, community event
    to celebrate the most important civic holiday, and what we have planned will make it
    special for everyone attending.”
    Craig Ranch, the City of McKinney and the McKinney Community Development
    Corporation are sponsoring the event that organizers say showcases the city’s history
    and community spirit, shopping and dining, and outdoor recreation and natural beauty.
    Red, White and BOOM! kicks off July 4 with a parade in Historic Downtown McKinney. A

    Veterans Salute, the 14

    th annual Killis Melton Ice Cream Crank Off and a car show with

    vintage and new models alike are all at various locations around downtown and are free
    and open to the public. Families can also enjoy the many dining and shopping options
    around downtown.
    In the evening, festivities move across town to the McKinney Soccer Complex at Craig
    Ranch. Live music, food, kids’ activities, a fly-over and an incredible fireworks display
    round out the traditional Independence Day celebration.
    “We are focused on fun activities for the whole family this year. It’s also extremely
    important for us to remember the true reason we celebrate our freedom, with a salute to
    our veterans at MPAC during the day and a special tribute to McKinney Blue Star
