Some of the best designed homes in the central Island will be on display Saturday (Oct. 5) for the third annual Parade of Homes.

The Canadian Home Builders Association of Central Vancouver Island kicks off national renovation month with seven Nanaimo homes as part of the tour.

A variety of styles of finished houses, mid construction and renovations are part of the tour, which offers an opportunity for people interested in building or updating to speak with local professional builders, renovators, suppliers and trades. There are classic homes, townhouses with elevators, energy efficient options and more. The properties featured at different stages will allow you to see behind the walls, ask questions and gather ideas.

Tour sponsor, Fortis B.C., provides its chef, hosting cooking demonstrations and doling out tastes throughout the day.

A one-time fee of $10 per couple will provide entry to all properties along with chances to win a barbecue package from Sears.

Start at any location and pay at the door. A map of addresses is available at www.chbacvi.com.
