2020 Parade of Homes

The Parade of Homes is a 9-day event open to the public to tour New Homes in your Communities, Custom Built Homes, Apartments and Remodeling Projects*!

Homes are judged on-site by a group of industry professionals. The Parade of Homes Gala, held at the Lancaster Country Club, is our prestigious award ceremony where we announce the big winners in all categories - including the coveted Fulton Bank Awards!

We have an extensive Marketing Plan for this community event which includes: Television Commercials, Billboards, Online Promotion, Social Media, Direct Mailing of the Guidebook to Over 100,000 People, Magazine Ads, and more!

The Parade of Homes is an outstanding benefit of BIA membership! This is one that builders, remodelers and realtors should not miss! 

*Remodeling Projects will be accepted on a case by case basis.
