Two Weekends of New Homes
Those who attend the Parade will have a chance to view a wide range of home styles, prices and locations. All the best in everything from innovative technologies and energy savings (including a net zero home), to examples of what is new in the way of floor plans, color schemes and amenities will be on display.
Every year the Parade draws buyers looking for new homes, owners looking for creative ways to renovate existing homes and consumers who are just curious about what’s new in their neighborhood or who want a fun way to spend an afternoon.
Be sure to bring all of your questions about design, energy savings, and new home trends. The site agents and builders will be available to greet you and provide whatever answers you need.
