When most of us think of a Parade, we think of the Parade of Homes, taking place in March and September every year.

However, there's now a third parade that features new homes for your enjoyment. The first annual Parade of Lights started brightening eight new neighbourhoods last Saturday.

The Manitoba Home Builders Association is pleased to present the Parade of Lights through to Sat. Jan. 11 with more than 50 new show homes are on display, fully decorated inside and out for the holiday season.

In Sage Creak, there are 10 homes on Grey Owl and Borealis Bay. There are three houses on Audette Crescent in Canterbury Park, while South Pointe features eight new homes on Stan Bailie Drive and Drew Street. Amber Trails has five homes on Rockmore Road.

Bridgwater Lakes is presenting 14 homes on Lake Bend Road and Eagle View Road, and River Park South has five homes on Wainwright Crescent. In Oak Bluff West, there are five homes on Casselman Crescent and there is one home being featured on Prairie View in Dugald.

Participation is both easy and fun. You can drive down any of these streets to see the exterior decorations, but inside is where the real excitement begins. A new home sales agent will welcome you and show you the features of each home. Using your smart phone, you can scan the QR code in the home and rate the decorations on a 1-to-5 scale. By submitting your e-mail, you're eligible to win a 52-inch TV generously donated by The Brick.

You can also rate the homes you visited by going to www.paradeofhomesselect.ca.

As well, the MHBA is asking all visitors to bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to the Christmas Cheer Board.

Show homes are open Monday through Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Come join the festivities!

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