Free parking is available on city streets. Please obey parking laws. Do not park in the driveways of Parade homes or block driveways of occupied homes.


Ask permission to take photos. In this age of social media and digital phones, it’s tempting to snap a photo of anything that interests you. Please ask the builder or Realtor working the home for permission first. And remember, that floor plans and unique home layouts can present a copyright concern.

Out of respect for the homes' future owners, please wear socks and remove your shoes when you tour Parade homes. Some Builders may provide shoe covers.
