The Parade of Homes Kicks Off on Saturday

Beautiful homes are ready for your viewing or buying pleasure.  The 53rd annual Parade of Homes opens tomorrow. The West Texas Home Builders Association will feature 25 homes.

The kitchens sparkle, the dining rooms glows and the electronics are unbelievable.  Whether you are in the market for a new home, want new ideas, or just want to look, the parade of homes kicks off on Saturday. 

"People have put so much in to these homes, as far as landscaping, and decorating, and audio visual things, so I think it would just be a fun time for the whole family to come out," said Parade of Homes Chairman James Hill. 

Builder Rische Beeson says there are many features that people may not have seen before. 

"One of the things we do when we build a home is we try to keep people's eyes moving.  So there's always something interesting to look at in a home," said Beeson. 

There is much detail that goes into building a home like this, even down to the cabinets.

"The cabinet doors have the soft close hinges, so they close themselves automatically and they don't slam," said Beeson. 

From a movie theater basement, to a game room upstairs, this house as it all, including its own water purification system. 

"This unit produces ultra pure water, and it can go to any station in the home," said Beeson. 

With so many different homes to tour, the Parade of Homes Chairman says there is a home for everyone. 

"We've got probably in excess $10-million of homes.  There are starter homes starting at $200,000 in excess up to $1-million so there is going to be a little bit of something for everyone here," said Hill. 

The Parade of Homes begins Saturday and runs through June 22.  Tickets can be purchased online, at any First Bank and Trust, or at the gate.  They are $10 for adults and $5 for children.
