Oktoberfest Opening Parade

A long-standing tradition of Oktoberfests around the world, the opening parade of McKinney’s Oktoberfest marks the beginning of a weekend filled with food, drink and lots of fun!

Led by a high-energy drum line and featuring lots of Lederhosen and smiles, the parade starts Friday afternoon at 6:00 p.m. and winds through the festival grounds and ends at the keg-tapping ceremony. 

Bring your friends and neighbors and help us kick off the weekend’s festivities…Prost!
