Parade's end no reason to stop visiting show homes

This year’s Spring Parade of Homes featured 131 show homes.

While the 2019 Spring Parade of Homes officially ends tomorrow at 6 p.m., your chance to visit Manitoba’s newest show homes doesn’t end then.

Almost all of the show homes that have been part of the parade will remain open for viewing well after the event is over. Manitoba Home Builders’ Association builders have continued to see steady traffic this spring, with visitors coming out to view the 131 show homes entered.

Once again, this year’s entrants did not disappoint, providing Manitobans with the opportunity to view an amazing collection of designs, styles, quality and craftsmanship.

Our fall and spring parades are showcase events hosted by the MHBA that demonstrate the best the new-home industry has to offer. Whether you’re in the market for a new home, considering a change or just looking for ideas for your current home, no other parade of homes in Canada provides the opportunity 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 check out these beautiful homes. Most 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 at the new homes are still available to help you with your search for the perfect place. Also, if you need to take another look at a couple of homes before making your decision, they are open and ready to welcome you.

All of the parade homes are listed on the MHBA website, at, and can be viewed by clicking on the Parade of Homes button. Each home listing has contact information that will allow you to set up an appointment to see the show home of your choice. Just click on Make an Inquiry and you can send an email to the home’s builder to set up a viewing. As well, a digital version of 2019’s Spring Parade of Homes magazine is available at the MHBA’s website and will remain posted right up until the fall parade this September.

Hopefully, you also took the time to take some pictures while visiting our parade show homes and posted your favourite home on social media with the hashtag #paradeofhomesmb. All Instagram posts of selfies taken at parade show homes that used this hashtag were automatically entered for a $100 gift card.

There’s still time this weekend to enter, so make sure you snap a picture of yourself at your favourite parade show home and post it on Instagram with the #paradeofhomesmb hashtag!

We would love to have you visit the various show homes today and tomorrow between noon and 6 p.m., but if you are unable to get there this weekend, remember the homes will still be open afterward. See you this weekend as we wrap up a very successful Spring Parade of Homes!

Lanny McInnes is president of the Manitoba Home Builders’ Association.
