For the third straight year, the parade will be on multiple sites, instead of showcasing one community as it did for decades. The Building Industry Association of Central Ohio, which hosts the parade, made the switch in order to showcase a wider range of homes, and because of difficulties developing one high-end site with multiple builders.
This year’s parade, like last year’s, includes condominiums, townhomes and patio homes in addition to single-family homes, scattered throughout central Ohio from Ashville to Marysville.
Those in search of the architectural pizzazz of earlier Parade of Homes tours can get their fix in a few communities showcasing million-dollar homes: Jerome Village, in Union County, which will feature homes priced at $1.1 million, $1.55 million and $2.45 million.
The parade runs noon to 6 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays from Sept. 21 through Oct. 8. The event is free. For details, visit the BIA Parade of Homes website.
