The Housing & Building Association of Western Colorado has scheduled its annual Parade of Homes to continue Oct. 15 to 17.

The self-guided tour will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct 15 and 16 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 17. Tickets sell for $15 and are available at Safeway locations in Grand Junction and online at

“We are excited to be back completely in person this year with eight spectacular homes located between Grand Junction and Loma. The homes are exquisite with unique outdoor spaces and breathtaking views,  said Kelly Maves, a member of the HBA of  Western Colorado board of directors.

The parade will showcase the work of seven Mesa County builders — Alegria Homes, Alta Home Builders, Copper Creek Builders, Dahl Built Homes, J. Howell Custom Builder, Maves Construction and Senergy Builders. The homes range in price from $300,000 to more than $1 million and in size from 1,228 square feet to 3,676 square feet. With COVID-19 protocols in place, participants should bring face masks for use when required.

Prior to touring homes, participants are encouraged to download the Grand Junction Parade of Homes application from an app store on a mobile device. The app offers previews, builder information, a map and navigation assistance. “We’ve gotten rave reviews from the app,  Maves said. “All the information is at your fingertips, and it makes touring easy and convenient. 

Participants touring homes will vote on people’s choice awards in three price categories and may join in a scavenger hunt sponsored by Alegria Homes to win a $500 gift certificate to downtown Grand Junction businesses.
