Peoria, IL – The Home Builders Association of Greater Peoria (HBAGP) has announced details for its 22nd Annual Parade of Homes. This year’s line-up includes a wide range of home locations and offers visitors the opportunity to see homes in a variety of price ranges, from starter homes to luxurious dream homes.
The Parade of Homes is a freestyle new home tour showcasing new construction in several area communities. See the one home that suits your needs, or take the tour and see them all! You decide where to go and which houses to see on this self-guided tour of incredible homes. This year’s entries are located in eight local communities — Metamora, Pekin, Canton, Elmwood, Hanna City, Edwards, Dunlap, and Peoria!
The event is open to the public and features 14 Builder Members of the Association proudly displaying 20 newly-constructed homes. The event is held two consecutive weekends:
June 22-23 and June 29-30, and the homes are open all four days from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Admission is free to tour the homes.
An official “Tour Guide” featuring information on each home and driving directions to the homes is available free of charge after June 20 by visiting any area CEFCU Member Center. The book will also be distributed in the Saturday, June 22 edition of the Peoria Journal Star for home subscribers. Visitors can even get started on the tour without a book in hand, as driving directions to the homes can be found on the Association’s web site at www.peoriahba.com. Once you reach a Parade Home, the “Tour Guide” books are available in each of the homes.
The Home Builders Association of Greater Peoria is also proud to showcase the work of two high school building trades programs with home entries. Most importantly for our visitors, remember that some homes may be owner-occupied and that none of the homes are open outside of the posted event hours. This is a new home construction showcase, not a decorated home tour – although some homes are fully completed, landscaped and furnished; while others are still in various stages of construction. This aspect of the event offers visitors a chance to see the various stages of construction, and offers the potential buyer an opportunity to make some personal selections for the home prior to completion.
