Check Out These Summer 2018 Events in McKinney, Texas

cyclist

There is plenty to do throughout the year in McKinney, but the summer months are especially busy. Here are a few summer 2018 events in McKinney, Texas, you will not want to miss.

Bike the Bricks

On Friday, May 25th, head to Historic Downtown McKinney for an epic bike race that lasts from 3pm to 11pm. The event is free to watch, though if you have racing in your blood, you will have to pay to enter and compete for the grand prize of $25,000. As a spectator, you can enjoy food, spirits, and family-friendly activities while you witness the event.

Red, White and BOOM!

There is no Fourth of July celebration like Red, White and BOOM! Held downtown on Independence Day, this festivity includes dining, shopping, a car show, block party, parade, concert, fireworks display, and more. It truly is an all-day event to engage the whole family.

McKinney Oktoberfest

Summer technically ends a littler earlier in September, but here in Texas, the summer heat will still be hanging out for the McKinney Oktoberfest, held from September 28th through 30th. Enjoy food, drinks, family activities, and live entertainment.

For more suggested events to attend this year, call us at El Dorado Chevrolet; we’ll be more than happy to recommend our favorite festivities.

Would You Take Chevrolet’s 48-State Road Trip?

Chevy Colorado

Last month, Chevy teamed up with Randy Olson, a data scientist, to design a road trip of epic proportions—one that takes drivers and their passengers through all 48 contiguous United States. Chevrolet’s 48-state road trip includes one stop in each state, at locations such as historic landmarks, beautiful natural phenomena, and the country’s most exciting theme parks.

This giant road trip would take 214.56 hours of driving (approximately nine days) without stopping. If you add on stops for gas, food, lodging, and enjoying the recommended spots in each state—plus any extra detours to see other landmarks or visit loved oens—this road trip could easily last over a month.

In total, the route that Chevy and Olson mapped out lasts 13,389 miles—too many miles to go without an oil change, which means you’d also have to find a couple certified Chevy dealerships along the way. To play it safe, get your oil change here at El Dorado Chevy before embarking on your adventure.

You can also test drive one of our 2018 Chevy models, which have earned a reputation for trustworthy performance. “Road trips are about creating shared memories and quality time with family and friends,” remarked Steve Majoros, director of marketing, Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers. “When on the road, travelers can trust Chevrolet vehicles to help get them where they’re going reliably. Chevy is now the only brand to earn J.D. Power Dependability Awards for cars, trucks and SUVs three years in a row.”

Whether you stop by for vehicle maintenance or to take a whirl in a shiny new 2018 model, El Dorado Chevrolet will be more than happy to help you have the most memorable road trip yet.
