The Home Builders Association of Fargo-Moorhead is proud to announce its Spring Parade of Homes running nine days: April 28-May 6. Sponsored by Marvin Windows & Doors, the Parade covers two weekends for consumer convenience. Hours are noon-5 p.m. weekends and 6:30-8:30 p.m. weekdays.
Admission is free. The event will be a scattered-site tour of 65 homes Dilworth, Fargo, Mapleton, Moorhead and West Fargo, built with pride by 37 HBA of F-M Builder members. Homes will cover all price ranges, including options for those age 55 and better, first-time buyers, people needing more space, and those wanting to downsize.
Parade of Homes magazines detailing each home entry will be available at all Hornbacher’s stores April 23-May 6. The magazine will be a full-color, glossy publication with a half page dedicated to each home entry. Homes will be represented in full color, with 3-D renderings. Builders also have an option to include a floor plan with home listings. The magazine will include detailed maps to each Parade entry, as well as a condensed listing of all homes entered in the event. An insert with home listings will be published in The Forum April 22.
