28th Annual Parade of Homes Kicks Off This Weekend


The Wilmington – Cape Fear Home Builders Association (WCFHBA) is proud to announce the 28th Annual Parade of Homes. The Parade will run two weekends, Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27 and Saturday, May 3 and Sunday, May 4. The self-guided tour is free to the public and homes will be open from noon to 5 p.m. each day.

“For 28 years the Parade of Homes has been the first place for families interested in the Cape Fear region to explore the options of new homeownership, whether they are looking for a new home, a vacation home or planning to relocate to our area,” says Cameron Moore, Executive Officer of WCFHBA.

More than 70 homes are featured in this year’s Parade including single-family houses, townhomes, and custom built homes. Homes are located throughout New Hanover, Brunswick, and Pender counties and prices range from the $150’s to the $800’s. “The Parade of Homes is the ultimate opportunity to view a variety of new homes built by talented, local builders,” says Heath Clark, 2014 Parade of Homes Chair. “No matter what you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it in this year’s Parade.”

Homes featured on the tour boast the latest building trends, materials, and products that WCFHBA members bring to the marketplace. This event provides the public with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to tour new homes, see the latest technology, and to get building and remodeling ideas for their own homes. “We are proud of the role residential and commercial builders play in making home ownership possible for everyone,” says Craig Johnson, President of WCFHBA. “We are also proud of the role we play in providing homes, jobs, and taxes in our state and in our local communities.”

The WCFHBA began the annual Parade of Homes event in 1987.  The first Parade featured 26 homes located throughout New Hanover County.  The tour was held over one weekend in October and featured homes with prices averaging $100,000.  Today as our economy rebounds, so does our new home market – reflected in the variety, quality and craftsmanship of this year’s Parade – Still Living the American Dream.
