The 2016 Idaho Falls Parade of Homes is here. This year, there are 14 beautiful homes for you and your families to visit.

“These exceptional homes showcase imaginative designs, superb craftsmanship, [and] exclusive custom features with some of the latest innovative technologies,” said Tanya Cromwell, the Parade of Homes Committee Chairman.

According to the Parade of Homes magazine created by the Eastern Idaho Home Builders Association, there are 14 homes for individuals to visit, including 10 in Idaho Falls, three in Ammon and one in Rexburg.

Each of the homes features state-of-the-art design and construction, and visitors are reminded to follow certain rules of Parade Etiquette.

According to Guardian Homes, an Idaho Falls home builder participating in the event, the following rules are in place for guests visiting homes:

  1. Remove your shoes before entering a home and use the booties provided
  2. Exit each house through the garage, leave the booties at the home
  3. Do not use the restrooms inside the homes
  4. Avoid walking on landscapes
  5. Do not bring food or drinks into the homes
  6. Do not use camera or other recording devices

The event begins September 15 and goes until September 18. The first three days, the event starts at 10 a.m. and ends at 8 p.m. On the final day, the event begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m.

Tickets for the Parade of Homes are $10 per person. Those who wish to attend may purchase tickets at any of the homes. Tickets may also be purchased at the locations of some of the event’s partners.

In addition to visiting each home, those in attendance are invited to vote for their favorite home. Everyone who votes will be entered into a contest for a chance to win a dinner for two and a night at Destinations Inn in Idaho Falls, according to the magazine.

“It takes so much work to put a home in the Parade,” Cromwell said. “From countless hours of subs working, to hours of decorating and cleaning, but most importantly, it takes a huge attention to detail to give you a great show.”

Don't miss out on this amazing opportunity to see some of the most beautiful homes in Idaho Falls. To learn more, visit the event's Facebook page or call 208-552-7032.
