WINTER, SPRING, SUMMER AND FALL … SHOW HOMES ARE OPEN FOR SAFE VIEWING YEAR-ROUND Over the past four decades, touring show homes during the Parade of Homes has been a rite of spring for thousands of Manitobans. For the time being, seeing Parade show homes will be a different experience, as Manitoba Home Builders' Association (MHBA) members have taken precautions to ensure the safety of visitors and sales representatives alike. MHBA president and CEO Lanny McInnes says builders will continue to take steps to ensure that Manitobans can visit show homes as safely as possible. "We saw those steps work extremely well during the Fall Parade of Homes and we plan on continuing having all of those precautions in place once again this spring," he says. "We will be following Manitoba Public Health's advice and if there are any changes in the current restrictions, we will make necessary adjustments to show- home operations prior to the Parade." Many builders are asking visitors to tour show homes or condo display suites by appointment only, after viewing photos and videos online. Visitors will find posted health and safety information, and you can expect all show homes to be following enhanced sanitation procedures. As a courtesy to others, use hand sanitizer, maintain a safe distance from fellow visitors and do not visit show homes if you have recently travelled or if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms. And remember — show homes are available for viewing year-round. While you'll find the greatest variety during the Parade, many show homes will still be open after the Parade officially ends. If you're interested in a particular show home or builder, call or visit the company website to find locations any time. Many builders have additional show homes that are not entered in the Parade, and in newer neighbourhoods, you may be able to tour several on the same block. Keep an eye on the MHBA's social media and website at for year-round updates as well as Parade news. Parade of Homes SPRING 2021 89
