The Parade of Homes is an annual tradition in the metro region. The Builders Association of the Twin Cities has announced that the Spring Parade of Homes will begin February 20th, 2016 (read the full announcement on the BATC’s website).
The Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC) is proud to present the 2016 Spring Parade of Homes. In its 68th year, the tour features 459 new homes all across the extended metro region. This Spring, the tour runs from February 20 through March 20, with all homes open Thursdays through Sundays, from noon to 6:00 pm.
The tour offers area families the opportunity to see and experience new homes and neighborhoods across the spectrum of price, style and location. All are free to tour with the exception of four Artisan Dream Homes that request a $5.00 donation at the door, which helps the BATC Foundation build and remodel homes for area families in need. Guidebooks are available at regional Holiday Stationstores beginning February 5th. Interactive searches, photo gallery, interactive Personal Designers, e-Magazine, plus a TripPlanner are all available online at ParadeofHomes.org and m.ParadeofHomes.org. See more details below.
Guidebook Features all 459 Homes and More
The magazine-style Guidebook showcases all of the Parade HomesSM, with graphics, descriptions, maps and prices to make shopping easy. There are a variety of interesting articles, including stories from real families who are loving their new homes (our cover “real family” story features local blogger Lindsay Truax). There is also an infographic explaining the home building process in ten easy steps.
As usual, there is a calendar of events so visitors can plan their tours to attend special events like wine tastings, design seminars and cinnamon roll Sundays. Plus Style editor, Katy Baar, shares top design and accessory trends from local designers.
