Parade of Homes Fall 2011
After a hiatus, the Parade of Homes™ is returning the Nashville area. The 17-day event is scheduled from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. September 26 through October 9 in the Annandale neighborhood in Brentwood.
Sponsored by Triton Stone Group and presented by the Home Builders Association of Middle Tennessee, the parade is being held courtesy of developer CPS Land. Four beautiful homes constructed by middle Tennessee’s top builders will be decorated by noted interior designers.
Gazillions of ideas is the only way to describe the Parade of Homes, a single site event in a Middle Tennessee area neighborhood with easy parking.
Visitors from throughout the southeast have come to rely on the premier event for the latest ideas in what is cool, new, and different in home building, architecture, interior design, furnishings, and landscape.
Home tours are a popular form of entertainment. The Parade of Homes has distinguished itself as an event where builders, designers, and sub-contractors showcase their most creative work. Companies use the event to launch new products and services including countertops, appliances, tile, brick, carpet, and audio/video outdoor and indoor systems.
Tickets are $12 at the gate. Hours are from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. at Brentwood's Annandale neighborhood. The last tickets of the day are sold at 7 p.m. For more information visit www.hbamt.net.
