Parade of Homes
April 11-19, 2015

The Acadian Home Builders Association (AHBA) is proud to present the 53rd Annual Parade of Homes showcasing the latest in home building design and products. Houses included in the Parade exhibit the hottest trends in architecture, floor layout, building materials, and appliances. Some are also furnished by local interior designers in a wide range of styles. Square footage and prices range from starter homes to estates.

The Parade of Homes is a self-guided tour where ticket holders can view as many homes as they like in any order they choose. Ticket purchases include the official Parade of Homes Guide Book which contains pictures and descriptions of each home, builder profiles, and a map.

The 2015 Parade of Homes will feature 31 newly constructed homes in 20 subdivisions across Acadiana, all built by 26 state-licensed AHBA builder members.

*Weather Update*
AHBA does not "cancel" the Parade for inclement weather. It is up to the individual builders to decide whether or not they want to close their home during periods of rain. If there is a torrential downpour, it is a safe bet that most of the homes will be closed. However, if it's only slightly raining or their are periods of no rain, a lot of the homes may be open.

Tickets
Tickets will be available beginning Monday, March 30, 2015 at the locations listed below during normal business hours. During Parade hours, tickets may also be purchased on Degualle Square in River Ranch. All ticket outlets accept cash or check only.

The ticket price is $10.00 each, and every person and child in a party must have a ticket, including real estate agents. Children under 2-years-of-age are admitted free. Tickets will be checked at the door of each home. Guide books and maps included with ticket purchase while supplies last.
