How do I plan which homes I want to visit?
It is best to have a game plan before heading out to tour the homes. You can plan your route by looking at teh maps and homes in the current issue of Home Ideas Magazine, or you can download the new Sioux Empire HBA Guide app. This new interactive tool will allow users to browse photo galleries, view project details and map a route to your favorite homes all at your fingertips. This app will make it easier for us to connect you to all the homes on your tour list.
Do I have to tour homes in a certain order?
No! You are welcome to begin at any parade home you choose. You do not need to visit homes in numerical order; homes are simply numbered to help locate them on the map and don't indicate a required order to follow.
Is there signage that helps us locate the Showcase of Remodeled Homes?
Yes! During the event weekend, you will see orange directional yard signs throughout the Sioux Empire to help you navigate directly to each home. Homes will have orange string flag pennants in the front yard to signify the home is on the showcase and open for the public to view.
How much does it cost to tour the homes?
It costs $5.00 a person to purchase a ticket to tour all the homes on the Showcase of Remodeled Homes.
