The crew from Texas travel show YOLO TX visited downtown McKinney during the summer of 2020, stopping at several spots to chat with folks who work here and make our community such a special place to live and visit. The show broadcast two segments on downtown with combined coverage of all the places they visited back in July, but since then, have aired extended segments of some of the separate businesses including Local Yocal BBQ & Grill, The Celt, Arcade 92, and Goodies Texas. (Click the links to view each video.)

During the full episode, host Aerin Carreno shared her culinary adventures and good times enjoying downtown McKinney's music and nostalgic scene. To watch this fun episode, click HERE.

She also interviews Local Yocal BBQ & Grill's Chef Adam West and owner/rancher Matt Hamilton then rocks out at a parking lot concert featuring McKinney's own Jon Christopher Davis. You'll definitely want to watch! In this blog entry, we wanted to share some behind-the-scenes photos with Aerin and the YOLO filming crew during their visit here.
