7-10pm Gates open at 5:30pm Weather is going to be gorgeous!! Tables are limited, so we suggest showing up by 6pm (bring a law chair to be safe). Also pack your picnic basket, but leave the beverages to Wales Manor. A variety of wines and other beverages will be for sale at the show. Kids 13 and under get in FREE! Wales Manor is just on the outskirts of McKinney. If you've never been there, allow yourself an additional 15 minutes. This place is off the grid, which is what makes it so cool.
