Doors Open to 2003 Parade of Homes

Saturday, the welcome mats were put out by builders of three subdivisions of homes in south Lubbock hoping to show potential buyers how dreams, creativity, and imagination can be brought to life.

This week, the West Texas Home Builders Association is inviting you to live your dream.

"We want people to walk into the house and feel like they've gone back in time or feel like they are in a whole other world," said home builder Jason Sharkey. He built one of 24 homes showcased in this year's Parade of Homes.

"We have the latest technology in all these homes, all the energy efficiency one could ask for, all the different designs, shapes, and sizes. It's a unique parade, $7.5 million worth of product, and that alone is worth coming out to the parade this year," said parade chairman Steve Hill.

Whether you are in the market to buy or looking to remodel your own home, the builders, decorators, and designers at the parade can tailor to whatever it is that you envision.

"(One of the houses) incorporates a mosaic painted by a local artist. That sort of thing is unique," said Sharkey.

The homes featured in the parade are located at Highland Oaks at County Road 7540 and Slide Road, LakeRidge South at 98th and Savannah, and StoneBrook at 105th and Indiana.

The Parade of Homes continues through Sunday, August 3rd. Admission for adults is $8, children are $4. The hours of the parade are Monday through Friday from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. and 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. during weekends.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Family Outreach Center of Lubbock.
