COUPONS

Also available at the parade homes is a $5 OFF coupon for the Fall 2024 Parade of Homes and a $5 OFF coupon for the 2025 Cedar Rapids Home Show, a $10 value.

BRING YOUR SOCKS

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.

NO PUBLIC RESTROOMS

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.

ASK BEFORE TAKING ANY PHOTOS

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.

FOLLOW THE GOLDEN RULE

Remember, each parade home is someone’s future home. So be considerate, tread lightly and be a good guest.

TAKE NOTES

You’re sure to see lots of ideas and building projects on the parade that you’d like to include 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.

STAY UP TO DATE

Follow the Parade of Homes at gcrhba.org and check for any updates.

VIRTUAL TOURS

After the parade is finished, a virtual tour of all parade homes will be available at gcrhba.org in case you want to take another look.
