I love spring time! A chance to get out and enjoy the sunshine, the flowers, the humidty, (the sometimes) scorching temps in Texas, bees, mosquitos, insane drivers cutting through our state to destinations unknown! Did I say I love spring time?
Hey, you can keep it local this weekend – enjoy the the a/c in your car (hopefully bee free), then enjoy the a/c in a new home! The Heart of Texas Builder’s Association has gotten the 2010 Parade of Home underway in Waco! Officially, it started June 5th but it’s on again for the this upcomming weekend (Saturday, June 12 & Sunday, June 13th).
If you’ve never done the Parade of Homes “thing”, it really is fun. A bunch of local builders will put some of their new homes on the “parade route” and showcase their product. Add on top of that, many REALTORS will also hold open houses of the homes that they currently have on the market too. It’s a great way to to view some new designs and trends in home building and a chance to ask builders any questions that you may have.
Hey, it’s cheap entertainment! Tickets are only $5.00 a person to view all the homes. You can purchase tickets at any home on the parade route. Hours are: Saturday, June 12th 11am – 5pm and Sunday, June 13th Noon – 5pm.
Here’s a map of this year’s parade of homes (click on it for a larger view):
