The snow and cold temperatures we’ve experienced this past week might make it hard to believe, but spring really is just around the corner and we are only five weeks away from the 2022 Spring Parade of Homes!

The Manitoba Home Builders’ Association’s Parade of Homes is the signature showcase event for the province’s residential construction industry, providing Manitobans interested in building their new dream home an opportunity and experience unlike any other available in Canada.

The MHBA’s 2022 Spring Parade of Homes starts on Saturday, Feb. 26 and runs through until Sunday, March 20. Our Parade show homes are located in 24 of Manitoba’s newest neighbourhoods and provide those looking to potentially find their new dream home with an opportunity to learn about the latest trends in new home and interior design, the hottest new home technology and cutting edge building materials and systems.

Manitoba’s Parade of Homes continues to be the biggest and best parade in Canada. Once again, Manitoba’s best home builders will be presenting over 100 unique new homes. Having so many different options available to visit — each one with its own layout, materials, finishes and designs — means our Parade gives Manitoba home buyers a unique opportunity to see and experience the widest variety of home building options in an actual home setting. And as always there is no admission charge.

Our builder members continue to have measures in place that make the visiting experience during the Parade of Homes as safe as possible for their guests and their staff. These measures are in place to ensure that anyone visiting our builders’ show homes are doing so as safely as possible. Masks or face coverings are required to be worn by anyone visiting a show home. All visitors will be required to answer pre-screening questions and to sanitize their hands upon entering a home. Show homes are frequently sanitized and access to show homes is limited to ensure proper social distancing takes place while you are visiting the show homes. Parade Show homes are available to visit by booking an appointment with the builder outside of the Parade hours. These steps are being implemented to help ensure that your visit is a safe as possible.

In just five weeks, the best of the best of Manitoba’s new home construction will once again be on display. Look for the Spring Parade of Homes magazine in the Feb. 26 edition of the Free Press and at any Steinbach Credit Union. Our magazine always contains great articles and features on the latest trends in home building and home design. In the next few weeks you can also visit our Parade of Homes page at the MHBA website at homebuilders.mb.ca for more information on each of the Parade show home listings.

And be sure to follow the MHBA on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for the latest Parade news, to enter fun contests, and for featured show homes throughout the Spring. MHBA builders are looking forward to seeing you at this years’ Spring Parade and welcoming you to your new home.
