The Sioux Empire Homebuilders Association puts on the yearly event which gets started on Saturday. In 1961, HBASE held the first Parade of Homes in Sioux Falls. Over the years, there have been 67 Parade of Homes' events with over 3,675 Parade homes featured. The event runs September 22nd - 24th and then September 29th through October 1st. The event runs Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00pm to 5:00pm and Mondays from 5:30pm until 8:30pm.
There will be over 65 homes on display in Sioux Falls, Harrisburg, and Canton. Homes range in price from $135,000 to well over $1 million. The event is free for all homes excluding the $6 donation to tour the two Feature Homes. Those proceeds benefit the Sioux Empire Home Builders Care Foundation. That's the charitable arm of the HBA that donates tools to schools, scholarships and funds projects for Repair Affair.
The map and descriptions of the Parade homes will be in the September issue of Home Ideas Magazine. The magazines can be found at Hy-Vee, Gas Stop, and Lewis Drug. The two feature homes on this year's Fall Parade ($6 to see both) are both located on Brentridge Circle in south central Sioux Falls (south and west of 69th & Western).
If you are looking for great advice you can get it right from the builders at this event. You can see this year's latest trends and products in newer homes and even visit with builders and suppliers. Builders will be on hand at homes to talk about what they used and how they built different projects in the home. They can talk to you about cost-saving supplies and ideas if you are looking to remodel your home.
