Main Street is complete. Let's celebrate! 

 

The City of Richardson and CORE District merchants are hosting a Main Street Celebration on Saturday, Oct. 23 from noon to 5 p.m. along Main Street between Interurban and McKinney Streets. The free event, which will kick off on McKinney Street with music performed by the Richardson Symphony Orchestra, and then a ribbon-cutting, will celebrate recent improvements to Main Street, the heart of the Richardson community. 
 

The City of Richardson and area merchants are hosting this event to welcome visitors back to Downtown Richardson. The updated neighborhood in the heart of Richardson now provides a more pedestrian-focused setting featuring wider walkways, additional landscaping, decorative lighting, new community gathering spaces and outdoor restaurant seating. Come rediscover your downtown!
