Consumers have a chance before the leaves fall to view a showcase of 28 new homes by 17 Builders in the Fargo-Moorhead area. Hosted by the Home Builders Association of Fargo-Moorhead, the Fall Parade of Homes will run two weekends, Sept. 8-9 and 15-16. Hours are noon - 5 p.m. each day. Admission is free.
The Fall Parade will include a wide range of prices in developments throughout Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo. The homes are built with pride by HBA of F-M Builder members, each with his or her distinct style. Bright yellow and blue directional signs and pennants will mark homes participating in the Parade.
Parade of Homes magazines detailing each home entry will be available at all Hornbacher's stores beginning Sept. 4. The magazine will be a full-color, glossy publication with a half page dedicated to each home entry. Homes will be represented in full color, with 3-D renderings. Builders also have an option to include a floor plan with home listings. The magazine will include detailed maps to each Parade entry, as well as a condensed listing of all homes entered in the event. An insert with home listings will be published in The Forum Sept. 2.
