After much deliberation the HBA Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2020 HBA Parade of Homes. Safety of attendees, builders, homeowners and staff were at the forefront of this decision. Travis Miller stated, "it was decided that in the best interest of the HBA members, staff, and the general public that we will not be conducting a 2020 Parade of Homes." Travis went on to say, "I know this is disappointing to builders and vendors who had intended to participate in the parade, but the current environment and the increase in COVID cases is not conducive to holding a public event that is attended by thousands of people each year."
Currently plans for a 2021 Parade of Homes are in the works. Determination of whether it will be a Spring Parade of Fall Parade depends on many factors, but the HBA is hopeful that things will be looking up in 2021.
