Message From the BIA
Welcome to the 2018 Parade of Homes!
As we celebrate another year of the Parade of Homes, it is my pleasure to present to you an extraordinary array of design and style displayed in 31 of the finest new homes across Lancaster and Lebanon Counties. For 9 days, the BIA is offering you the chance to experience and explore these fantastic homes crafted by our local builders. You will be inspired by the unique style and design found in each and every one. There has never been a better time to think about investing in your perfect home. You are sure to find it on Parade! Whether you are planning a move or a remodeling project, or you simply enjoy admiring the latest home trends, this event is for you.

How To Use This Website
We have designed this website and its accompanying maps to make it easy to locate the homes of greatest interest to you. There are separate sections for single-family homes and multi-family homes (townhomes, duplexes, etc.), as well as color-coding to distinguish the homes in various price ranges.
The information provided about each home includes an exterior photograph, floor plans, an amenities list, and easy-to-follow directions. In addition, each Parade home has been assigned a two-digit code (such as 25) which corresponds to its placement on the map. Simply select a section of map to zoom in and then select the color-coded home you wish to see.
For 2018, we’ve added special icons indicating homes that feature new design and building trends.

Tour The Homes
The 2018 Parade of Homes features 31 new homes which are open to visitors from Saturday, June 16, through Sunday, June 24. Tour hours are 12:00-6:00 pm on weekends, and 5:00-8:00pm on weekdays. Since Parade traffic is higher on weekends, you may wish to visit some of the homes during the week.
The homes featured in the Parade of Homes are built as private residences rather than public buildings. For this reason, the homes may not be handicapped accessible. If you should need to confirm handicapped accessibility, please contact the individual builder.
Socks or stockings are required, as visitors may be asked to remove their shoes in some of the homes; additionally, some builders may require the use of shoe coverings, which are provided. All children must be closely supervised.
Parade homes are judged in six categories and the awards are on display in each winning home.
The price for each home in the Parade of Homes has been calculated based on the current prices for the component building materials. However, the market for the building materials is considered to be volatile, and sudden price increases could occur. The Builder agrees to use his best efforts to obtain the lowest possible prices from available building material suppliers, but should there be an increase in the prices of materials that are purchased to duplicate this residential construction project, the listed price would be affected.
