The Parade of Homes
The Parade of Homes allows area residents to tour new home designs.
Homes in the Hoover area will be featured in this year’s Parade of Homes May 9-10 and 16- 17. The Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders (GBAHB) event allows potential new home buyers and others to see construction and design trends and to connect with builders.
The Preserve, Ross Bridge, The Hamptons at Ross Bridge, Magnolia Grove and McGill Crossings will all be featured.
For the fourth year, an Ideal Home will serve as a showcase house, featuring the latest in design trends, decor, technology and sustainability. The 2015 Ideal Home is in The Preserve in Hoover at 451 Renaissance Dr.
“This home truly is an ‘ideal home,’” said Kyle Murphy, 2015 Parade of Homes chairman. “It incorporates all of the wants and needs of today’s buyer, coupled with the latest in products and features.”
In addition to the more than 75 featured homes, this year the Parade will feature 22 “villages.”
“The Parade gives people the opportunity to tour some of Birmingham’s most elegant and beautiful new homes,” said Alicia Vincent, executive officer of the GBAHB. “It’s an annual tradition for a lot of local families, and with new homes in every price range, people often discover exactly what they’d like to see in their next home.”
