The 2008 Parade of Homes officially got underway last weekend and will continue for the next two weeks. Overall, 15 of the homes on the “Around The Lake” tour are inside the parish, with 12 of them located in Ashton Plantation.

Ashton Plantation is the featured neighborhood for this year’s event.

“We hope that you enjoy the various architectural styles, new and exciting technologies and building techniques, and the dynamic products used in the construction of all of our homes,” Jennifer Drude, 2008 Parade of Homes chair said. “We are confident that whether you are in the market for a new home or just looking for ideas to update or renovate your existing home, you will find something that suites your desires.”

During the tour of the homes, builders and home materials representatives will be on hand to chat and answer questions about the latest in home construction. Besides Ashton Plantation, homes on the tour can also be found in Montz, St. Rose and Luling’s Lakewood Estates.

Tickets for the event are $5 and all proceeds will go to the United Way of Tangipahoa and Delgado Community College in New Orleans. Contact the Tangipahoa Home Builder Association at 985-543-0023 or the Home Builder Association of Greater New Orleans at 504-837-2700 for more information on where to purchase tickets.
