The Parade of Homes is an annual event  put on by the West Texas Home Builders Association.  It begins Saturday and runs through June 24. Three neighborhoods will be featured for touring – Bacon Crest, Canyons at Cooper Ridge and Fountain Hills Estates.

On KFYO, Brenda Hawkins talked about the latest trends in new homes.

“We’re seeing open floor plans, outdoor entertaining, very family oriented homes that are energy efficient,” Hawkins said.

A portion of the ticket sales proceeds will help pay the mortgage for a home built by Homes for Heroes.
