McKinney Spooktacular Brews and Boos Walk
Hosted by the McKinney Sip & Stroll Series, the Spooktacular Brews and Boos event is a great way to celebrate the season while tasting some of the best local craft brews. The event is held in the heart of historic downtown McKinney and is perfect for a date night or an outing with friends. Like other McKinney Sip & Stroll events, Boos and Brews isn’t just a chance to taste local brews, it’s also a way to give back to the community. Proceeds from the event go toward local nonprofits and support a range of charitable causes.
This year, the Spooktacular Brews and Boos walk will take place on Oct. 29 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Participants are highly encouraged to wear their best Halloween costumes and can win prizes for the spookiest and most extravagant outfits.
When you arrive, you’ll receive a special tasting glass branded for the event. You’ll also get a map that shows your route through downtown so that you can make sure and visit all of the event’s vendors. This year, the walk will feature 20 participating locations, each serving delicious beverages. While the focus is on local craft breweries, there will be plenty of options if you prefer something different. If you want to enter the costume contest, be sure to enter at the tent near the entrance.
Aside from great beverages, you’ll be able to browse offerings from local vendors at the pop-up market at the McKinney Performing Arts Center. There will also be a photo booth so that you and your friends can make some memories and document your costumes. Tickets are $30 dollars per person and can be purchased online.
