It’s hard to believe that we are only four weeks away from the 2022 Fall Parade of Homes! The Manitoba Home Builders’ Association’s Parade of Homes is the signature showcase event for Manitoba’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 Fall Parade of Homes starts on Saturday, October 15 and runs through Sunday, November 6. People are expected to be visiting Parade show homes in many of Manitoba’s newest neighbourhoods to learn about the latest trends in new home and interior design, the hottest new home technology and building materials, and to potentially find their new dream home.
Increased health and safety measures, as well as adhering to social/physical distancing and sanitation guidelines, continue to be in place and are necessary for everyone at this time for the protection of those working in or visiting builder show homes. These measures allow everyone to continue to visit these amazing show homes in as safe an environment as possible.
Our Parade continues to be the biggest and best parade in Canada. This Fall, there will be over 100 unique new homes on display. When one considers that some of the larger Parades in other Canadian cities range around 30 display homes, having over 100 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. An opportunity and showcase of this scope and size is uniquely Manitoban.
The MHBA’s Fall Parade of Homes will provide home buyers with the chance for to see firsthand the latest work by 31 of Manitoba’s leading home building companies. It is also a great chance to check out and explore many of Manitoba’s newest neighborhoods. This year’s Fall Parade will again feature show homes in 25 of Manitoba’s newest communities and neighbourhoods. Finding out which community has the right set of amenities and services that best fit your family can be just as important as finding which new home design is the right one for you. Taking in the Fall Parade of Homes is a great way to explore these wonderful new communities and neighbourhoods across Manitoba.
In just four weeks, the best of the best of Manitoba’s new home construction will once again be on display. Look for the Fall Parade of Homes magazine in the October 15 edition of the Winnipeg Free Press and at any Steinbach Credit Union. Our Parade magazine not only provides the details on our Parade Show Homes, but also 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 www.homebuilders.mb.ca for more information on each of the Parade show home listings. And be sure to follow the MHBA on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for the latest Parade news, to enter fun contests, and for featured show homes throughout the Fall. MHBA builders are looking forward to seeing you at this years’ Fall Parade and welcoming you to your new home.
