Parade of Homes

When: Aug. 5-21 2011

Whenever my parents visit from Chicago, they like to tour the annual Parade of Homes (cshba.com). We've dreamed about our own homes having heated floors, mini theaters and outdoor fireplaces. This year's event includes all the fancy stuff as well as the very first LEED-certified property, and two houses for low-income families, one built by Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity and the other by Rocky Mountain Community Land Trust and Challenger Homes. Ten bucks (or $5 for those 65 and older) purchased at any Safeway grocery store will get you into 33 locations, from 10 to 6 today, or any day Aug. 5 through Aug. 21. And don't forget to bring a non-perishable food item; the Parade is collecting donations for Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado. — Kirsten Akens
