Parade of Homes
Since 1955, the Parade of Homes has featured over 1500 brand new homes in over 100 neighborhoods throughout Alachua County. The Parade showcases the latest in home design and décor with the most up-to-date energy saving construction techniques and the newest in land development.
Each Parade Home is a collective effort of numerous people who combine their talents and resources to show the public the newest ideas in the housing industry. Builders, developers, subcontractors, lenders, suppliers, designers, and many others have put their best foot forward to present the best our industry has to offer.
The Parade is very well attended each year with parade visitors either looking to buy a new home or getting ideas to enhance their own home.
