Parade of Homes ends this week, but viewings do not

While the 2017 Fall Parade of Homes officially ends tomorrow at 6:00 pm, your chance to visit Manitoba’s newest show homes won’t end on Sunday afternoon.  Almost all of the show homes that have been part of the Parade will remain open for viewing well after the Parade of Homes ends. While the last two weeks of this year’s Parade have seen colder and wetter fall weather settle in, MHBA builders have continued to see outstanding crowds visiting the 133 new homes entered in the Parade of Homes.  This year’s entrants did not disappoint, providing an amazing collection of design, style, quality, craftsmanship and choice for viewing during the Parade.

Our Fall and Spring Parades of Homes are showcase events hosted by the Manitoba Home Builders’ Association that demonstrate the best that the new home building industry has to offer. Whether one is in the market for a new home, considering a change or just looking for ideas for their current home, no other Parade of Homes in Canada provides the opportunity for people to experience such a collection of new home concepts, features and decor. For those who weren’t able to visit show homes during the Parade, you can still visit these beautiful homes.  Many of the show homes entered in the Parade are open year-round for viewing. The hours may be slightly different than during the Parade, but the sales representatives in the new homes are still available to help you with your search for the perfect home. So, if you need to take another look at a couple of homes before making your decision, they are open and ready to welcome you.

A digital version of the Fall Parade magazine is available at the Manitoba Home Builders Association web site at and will remain posted there right up until next year’s Spring Parade. You can also access the Parade magazine via the Winnipeg Free Press web site at We also look forward to announcing the 2017 Fall Parade of Home winning entries on October 13.  Watch for the winners to be featured on the MHBA website and through our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts.  We will be celebrating the best of the best and we encourage you to see if your favorite Parade home is an award winner this year.

We would love to have you visit the various show homes today and tomorrow between 12:00 and 6:00, but if you are unable to get there during the Fall Parade, the homes will still be open afterwards. See you this weekend at the Fall Parade of Homes!
