Parade of Homes set for Aug. 17-18

COOKEVILLE – The Upper Cumberland Parade of Homes will be Aug. 17 and 18 in Cookeville. Presented by the Home Builders Association of the Upper Cumberland, the tour will include new and remodeled houses that feature a variety of design styles and innovative building products. 

The Upper Cumberland is a great place to live, and the Parade of Homes showcases the exceptional quality and fine craftsmanship available here. Instead of merely browsing through design magazines and watching HGTV, you can stroll through impressive homes in real neighborhoods and talk directly to builders and product suppliers. You will see examples of quartz countertops, outdoor fireplaces, current paint colors, unique lighting, and other trends. The Parade of Homes is a unique opportunity to see, touch and learn. Although we all enjoy online shopping, there is no substitute for seeing actual products and talking to professionals. Whether you plan to build your dream home or want to upgrade your current residence, you’ll find plenty of inspiration, regardless of your budget.

The event will be Saturday, Aug. 17 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 18 from 12-5 p.m. Advance tickets are available for $7.50and can be purchased Aug. 5-16 at HomeCORR (Broad Street in Cookeville), Wilson Bank (Jefferson Avenue in Cookeville) or any First National Bank. With an advance ticket, participants receive a map with directions to the seven houses.  Tickets will be available for $10 at any of the seven houses during parade hours.
