Last night my husband and I had the pleasure of visiting one of my favorite events in Central New York, The Parade of Homes. Each year the local Home Builders Association and it’s members construct new homes with the latest in design, layout and building concepts. It’s house porn! Eight homes beautifully decorated and fully furnished for your viewing pleasure. As a jealous home lurker since 2nd grade trick or treating, I love to look inside other people’s homes! (is that weird?) And this show is the best place in Central New York to lurk and gawk at beautiful homes without getting weird looks! Last night was the charity preview evening. Those who bought tickets were treated to a fully catered dinner and given the chance to mingle and walk through the homes before they are open to the public today.
This year there are eight homes, each built by a different builder and none of them disappointed! The builders included: JMG Custom Homes , Harrington Homes , Pigliavento Builders, Sciuga Custom Builders, Martin Custom Homes , Merle Builders ,Summerset Homes, and SignatureCrest Builders. From walk in kitchen pantries to master bedrooms that never end the show will delight all who attend. If you’re a house person of just want to see Ah-MAZ-ING Homes this is the place to go. The show opens to the public today and runs though September 23rd.
Pictures DO NOT do this bathroom design justice it was one of my favorites. It was quirky and yet looked incredibly classy in the lower half bath.
Yes I will take this whole wall! The rock, the banister with the black rod iron work…YES YES YES! Luckily my husband tells me I have “manly” home decor taste so we were into all the same stuff!
The show is being held at the Riverwalk in the town of Clay this year in Onondaga County right off route 81. Directions and more information about the show can be found on the Home Builders Association of CNY’s Site. Admission is $10 per person… want to save $1 off admission they are offering discount coupons on their website. HUGE massive thank you’s to all the sponsors and people who make this event possible… It has to be some CRAZY planning to get 8 homes on the same street all built and ready at the same time. I can’t image! If you’ve ever built a house you have a whole new level or respect for those who put this together! Can’t make it to the show you can follow along on their social media Facebook Parade and Facebook and Twitter
I have to admit this post and some others I have coming up have inspired me to start a best of CNY page on my blog. For my local readers this will give you an idea of events, fitness classes and all things fabulous in Central New York! I can’t wait to show it off!
Have you ever been to an event like this? I know there are similar ones across the country I would love to hear about them!
