The 2019 Parade of Homes will be open to the public on Sept 20-22, with a special reserved seat VIP tour and awards banquet on Thursday, Sept 19.
The Parade of Homes features 9 homes this year. They range from traditional to modern and many feature cutting edge technology that is fast becoming part of new home building across the country. But a big part of appeal of home tours is the chance to see innovative designs…new color schemes, beautiful furnishings, exciting new appliances and other features.
The homes are the work of 8 different contractors and builders, ranging from large contractors to small builders, but all are MBIA members — chosen by their peers to belong to the premier building industry organization in the state. The homes were constructed by:
- Butler Creek Development
- Great Homes, Inc.
- Edgell Building Incorporated
- Hoyt Homes, Inc.
- Scott Smith Property Solutions
- Continuum Builder Group (2 homes)
- Chambers Custom Design
- Mostad Construction
The homes will be open to ticketed guests on the following hours and days:
- Friday, Sept 20 10a – 8p
- Saturday, Sept 21 10a – 8p
- Sunday, Sept 22 10a – 6p
Tickets are $10 each with discounts for veterans and senior citizens and they are available at the MBIA office on South Avenue and online at ‘paradecraze.com‘. There are also a limited number of tickets available at MBIA Gold Key sponsors: BMC and First Security Bank.
A special app designed for Parade-goers will go live just before the event. It will give participants directions to the homes, descriptions, photos and other information and allow them to comment on their favorite home, share photos and check from their cell phones! The Parade Craze app will have tickets for sale before and during the Parade. Tickets can also be purchased at each parade home. Look for a map of the 2019 Parade in the Missoulian the week before the event.
