There are plenty of options for entertainment in McKinney this weekend.
The all-volunteer McKinney Community Band will celebrate McKinney and the state of Texas in a concert they're calling "Home on the Arrangement." Enjoy patriotic selections, wind band favorites and even a surprise guest conductor. The 7:30 p.m. Saturday concert at the McKinney Performing Arts Center is free, but reservations are required so the band can track attendance.
