NTHBA’s Parade of Homes kick started this weekend

Donations are being made instead of ticket sales because of COVID-19

NTHBA Parade of Homes kick started this weekend

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - Sunday marks the first weekend of the 68th Annual North Texas Home Builders Association Parade of Homes.

For the past 20 years, NTHBA has been partnering with the Wichita Falls Habitat for Humanity to show residents of Wichita Falls new home trends, all while fundraising for a good cause.

However, with COVID-19, this year things look a little different.

“Typically a lot of our volunteers are older retirees and obviously with the scare that population is more affected by it and we’re having a hard time getting volunteers and also putting them at risks,” said Micheal Grassi, co-owner of Classic Builders.

Instead of having volunteers sell tickets in the homes, home builders have set up donation boxes to decrease the amount of person-to-person contact.

In addition to that, home builders have also set up stations where visitors can use sanitizer, get masks and gloves while they tour homes.

The Parade of Homes will be happening again next weekend, for more information visit the NTHBA website by clicking here.
