What is a Builder Model?

Builder Model home category was an added feature to the parade a couple years ago. There are many great benefits of having these homes in the parades but here are a couple that we like:

  • Builder Model’s often showcase some of the latest trends in design
  • Having the Model home in the Parade lets you shop when the lot is closed. Less of the hard sell, more of the looking.

What are your COVID safety precautions?

As we prepare to welcome you to the country’s longest-running Parade of Homes™, our builders want you to understand new procedures to protect your health and safety.  These measures will be implemented following the guidelines shared by our local health departments and government leaders.

  • Groups will be expected to meet existing social distancing procedures.
  • There will be no cash transactions on ticket sales.
  • Masks are recommended, unless otherwise mandated to be used by the state, county, or city in public areas, in which case they will be required.
  • Patrons who are experiencing symptoms won’t be allowed to enter homes.
  • Refrain from touching surfaces.

Note: Our builders will frequently disinfect areas that could be touched each evening and as needed during the event.
