Parade of Homes
April 9-17, 2016

The Acadian Home Builders Association (AHBA) is proud to present the 54th 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.
