The McKees Rocks Community Development Corporation (MRCDC) invites you to “Jingle Bell Rocks” to celebrate the start of the holiday season with live entertainment and attractions on Wednesday, November 18 from 6-9 p.m.

“Jingle Bell Rocks will serve as a celebration for both Sto-Rox residents and an invitation to visitors from around the region to discover the new emerging downtown district of lower Chartiers Avenue,” said Taris Vrcek, MRCDC executive director.

This rebirth is symbolized by the completion of the first pilot project of MRCDC’s facade program, Hollowood Music & Sound’s storefront, facade, and reconstruction/installation of the store’s iconic guitar sign on its 50th anniversary. The sign is now displayed as founder Jim Hollowood, Sr. originally envisioned it.
