Let it glow, Let it glow, Let it glow

Winnipeg Free Press - Section F - - HOMES - By Mike Moore

WHEN most of us think of a Pa­rade, we think of the Pa­rade of Homes, tak­ing place in March and Septem­ber ev­ery year.

How­ever, there’s now a third pa­rade that fea­tures new homes for your en­joy­ment. The first an­nual Pa­rade of Lights started bright­en­ing eight new neigh­bour­hoods last Satur­day.

The Manitoba Home Builders As­so­ci­a­tion is pleased to present the Pa­rade of Lights through to Sat. Jan. 11 with more than 50 new show homes are on dis­play, fully dec­o­rated in­side and out for the hol­i­day sea­son.

In Sage Creak, there are 10 homes on Grey Owl and Bo­re­alis Bay. There are three houses on Audette Cres­cent in Can­ter­bury Park, while South Pointe fea­tures eight new homes on Stan Bailie Drive and Drew Street. Am­ber Trails has five homes on Rock­more Road.

Bridg­wa­ter Lakes is pre­sent­ing 14 homes on Lake Bend Road and Ea­gle View Road, and River Park South has five homes on Wain­wright Cres­cent. In Oak Bluff West, there are five homes on Casselman Cres­cent and there is one home be­ing fea­tured on Prairie View in Du­gald.

Par­tic­i­pa­tion is both easy and fun. You can drive down any of th­ese streets to see the ex­te­rior dec­o­ra­tions, but in­side is where the real ex­cite­ment be­gins. A new home sales agent will wel­come you and show you the fea­tures of each home. Us­ing your smart phone, you can scan the QR code in the home and rate the dec­o­ra­tions on a 1-to-5 scale. By sub­mit­ting your e-mail, you’re el­i­gi­ble to win a 52-inch TV gen­er­ously do­nated by The Brick.

You can also rate the homes you vis­ited by go­ing to www.pa­rade­ofhome­s­s­e­lect.ca.

As well, the MHBA is ask­ing all visi­tors to bring a non-per­ish­able food item to be do­nated to the Christ­mas Cheer Board.

Show homes are open Mon­day through Thurs­day from 5 to 8 p.m. and on Satur­day and Sun­day from noon to 5 p.m. Come join the fes­tiv­i­ties!

Mike Moore is pres­i­dent of the Manitoba Home Builders’ As­so­ci­a­tion.
