Saturday was a busy day around parts of McKinney. Added to the usual family activities were the18th annual Killis Melton Ice Cream Crank-Off at Chestnut Square and Courtyards, Concerts and Cars at Tucker Hill.
Historic Chestnut Square was packed with ice cream lovers who sampled creations from Pink Lemonade to the popular favorite, Whiskey Pub Bread Pudding, while the younger set also experienced the fun at the petting zoo, face painting and carnival games.
The panel of judges was tasked with selecting the winner, with the Stonebridge Crankers’ Banana Pudding taking home the honor.
And the winners are:
