The Parade of Homes is a free event put on every year by the Home Builders Association of Greater New Orleans to give the public an opportunity to see inside the newest homes being built in the New Orleans area. Attendees who are looking to buy or build a new home can meet multiple builders in one day or weekend. The Parade is also great for inspiring ideas for those hoping to renovate their existing home.
Builders take this opportunity to showcase the newest building techniques and industry trends, and to market themselves to thousands of New Orleans-area residents. Parade homes can be in any of the seven parishes that fall into the HBAGNO jurisdiction - Orleans, Jefferson, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. John the Baptist, St. James, and St. Charles.
