Here Comes the Parade
The 67th Annual Parade of Homes, sponsored by The Home Building Association of Richmond (HBAR) returns to the Metro Richmond area in October. The event is the premier scattered-site home showcase and is free to the public. The self-guided tour begins on October 6 and will run all four weekends of the month.
This year’s Parade features 73 new homes built by 30 HBAR builder members. Well over half of these homes, which are located throughout the Greater Richmond area including the Counties of Chesterfield, Hanover, Henrico, King William, New Kent, and Powhatan are decorated models.
The event gives area residents an opportunity to discover what’s available in the Richmond market and to see innovative ideas, stunning design features, amazing floor plans, and master craftsmanship, at prices spanning from the low $200s to over $1.1 million.
“The Greater Richmond area is a unique market; there are more builders here than you will find in other regions of Virginia,” said Danna Markland, HBAR CEO. “The Parade of Homes offers the public a single source to find builders, locations, and styles of homes from a wide array of price points and ideas.
The Parade will be held October 6 and 7, 13 and 14, 20 and 21, and 27 and 28 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
Both the Parade of Homes Plan Book and the website, RichmondParadeofHomes.com, include detailed information about the event and the individual homes on the tour. The Plan Book is free and will be available beginning September 22 at area Kroger supermarkets and Wawa convenience stores, as well as at the HBAR headquarters located at 400 N. Ridge Road.
“The Parade of Homes is one of the top new home events of the year,” said Markland. “With so many stunning homes to tour, there is something for everyone.”
HBAR’s charity partner this year is the ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation. ASK is Central Virginia’s largest and most comprehensive provider of support services for children with cancer and their families. For more information about ASK, visit AskCCF.org.
