GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Two West Michigan home building groups announced Thursday they will display 27 new homes, two remodeled homes and two “conceptual” homes on their Fall Parade of Homes this year.
The parade, which will run from Oct. 5 through Oct. 20, will feature homes in 17 different communities, including Ada, Algoma, Allendale, Alto, Blendon Twp., Byron Center, Fennville, Grand Haven, Grand Rapids, Grandville, Hudsonville, Lowell, Nunica, and Rockford.
The annual Fall Parade of Homes is being presented by the Home Builders Association of Greater Grand Rapids, the Lakeshore Homebuilders Association and Lake Michigan Credit Union. It's a new collaboration between the homebuilders.
“We are very excited with the new partnership between the two associations," said Emily Seibert, executive officer of the Home Builders Association of Greater Grand Rapids. "We have homes all around West Michigan, from lakefront properties to downtown Grand Rapids”
The parade will feature residences in 17 different communities and prices of the houses will range from $100,000 to more than $2 million. The entries will feature the latest trends in building styles, green practices, custom details, unique floor coverings, wall treatments, quality products, and landscaping.
New homes will be open for touring on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Remodeled homes will be open for touring on Oct. 19 and Oct. 20 from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Tickets for the parade are available for $10 in advance when purchased at a Lake Michigan Credit Union branch. Tickets can be purchased online for $11 or for $12 when purchased at a parade home. Children 12 and under are free.
Ticket purchases will include the official Parade Guide with maps, a coupon for five dollars in gas from Meijer Inc. and admission to tour any home in the Kalamazoo Parade of Homes. Tickets purchased online or at Lake Michigan Credit Unions will also receive 20 percent off dining at select Gilmore Collection restaurants.
Standale Interiors, radio station Star 105.7-FM and the home builders also are sponsoring VIP bus tours on Oct. 10 and Oct. 17.
