Parade goers will see a mix of dark and light colors, especially black and white, and black windows and doors have become popular. Some of the homes will also showcase a trend towards lighter wood cabinets, but most of the homes still feature dark cabinets and woodwork.

After visiting the Parade Homes, ticket holders can vote for their favorite in the Peoples’ Choice voting sponsored by Prevail Bank. Anyone who casts their vote will have a chance to win one of three $100 cash prizes.

While touring the Parade Homes, ticket holders are encouraged to participate in a scavenger hunt to find unique items in each home. Anyone who completes the scavenger hunt can drop it off at the last house they visit for a chance to win one of 4 prize packages. Some of the scavenger hunt items include: an elevator, granite fireplace, hand applied plaster textures, copper cabinet, and much more!
