Whether this is your first time experiencing the Parade of Homes or you've been on the parade many times, it's always good to refresh yourself on the basics:
Several parade homes will be open as usual, offering in-person tours. However, with an ongoing supply chain crisis and labor short-ages, some parade homes will not be open to tour in-person, but can be viewed through a virtual tour at gcrhba.org.
Tickets are available at each parade home or any local Hills Bank branch for $10. Or get a discounted ticket at local Casey’s General Stores for $9. Children 12 and under FREE. A portion of each ticket sold will be donated to a local nonprofit organization, Matthew 25.
Please look for our official parade banner outside each parade home.
While touring the homes, make sure to sign up for our parade giveaway.
The public is encouraged to leave their shoes at the door of each parade home so the homes don’t experience too much wear and tear. Paper booties may not be provided at all locations, so be sure to wear socks because no bare feet will be allowed.
Please do not ask to use the bathroom or wash your hands inside the parade homes. There are no public restrooms on the Parade of Homes.
Each builder has put a great deal of time and work into their parade home and may or may not welcome you taking photos for future reference, so please ask first.
Remember, each parade home is someone's future home. So be considerate, tread lightly and be a good guest.
You’re sure to see lots of ideas and building projects on the parade that you’d like to in-clude in your current or new home. Hold on to The Gazette’s parade section so you can jot down notes to keep track of features you like and builders and remodelers you want to talk to. Also remember that all parade homes are available to tour online indefinitely at gcrhba.org.
