Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION

It's your last weekend for Spring Parade of Homes

  • Print

The formal portion of the 2014 Spring Parade of Homes ends tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. and, with the weather being so unpredictable this year, you may have not had ample time to see what these 122 new homes had to offer.

Not to worry, though: Almost all of the show homes that have been part of the Parade will remain open for viewing well after the official Parade ends.

Both the Spring and Fall Parades of Homes are showcase events hosted by the Manitoba Home Builders Association to demonstrate the best that the new-home building industry has to offer. Whether you're in the market for a new home, considering a change or just looking for ideas for your current home, nowhere else is there such a collection of concepts.

What many people often forget is that these show homes are open year-round for viewing. So, if you need to take another look at a couple of homes before making your decision, they're open and ready to welcome you.

If you recall visiting a neighbourhood or series of homes that especially interested you, but you have lost your Parade magazine, don't worry. All of the pertinent information is still available. Just go to the Manitoba Home Builders Association web site at www.homebuilders.mb.ca and the entire Spring Parade magazine will remain posted there right up until the Fall Parade.

You can also access the Parade magazine via the Winnipeg Free Press web site at www.winnipegfreepress.com.

As a special feature this year, the Manitoba Home Builders Association and the Winnipeg Free Press teamed up to create a Parade blog, Facebook page and a home ranking site. This years' awards will be determined by Parade visitors. Simply click on the QR code in each home and rank it from one to five stars in each of four categories. You be the judge. So, try to visit the various show homes today and tomorrow between noon and 6 p.m. But if you're unable to get there during the official Parade, it's easy to make your own arrangements to see them later.

And Manitoba's next exciting home-improvement event is just around the corner. The 40th annual Home Expressions Home and Garden Show takes place from April 4-66 at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg. This year's show also features the Hockey Fan Cave. Look for more details at www.homeexpressions.ca.

Mike Moore is the president of the Manitoba Home Builders' Association.
