On behalf of the Hilton Head Area Home Builders Association, welcome to the 2017 Lowcountry Parade of Homes!
This greatly anticipated public touring event has been part of our local area for nearly 30 years, providing both residents and visitors the rare opportunity to enjoy a 360 degree view of the design, amenities and craftsmanship offered by many of the Lowcountry’s top custom builders and communities. In 2016 a remarkable 18 homes, as well as two full communities were featured on the tour, extending over three days and locations reaching from Hilton Head Island to Bluffton, Okatie and beyond. We anticipate even greater participation spanning all over Beaufort, Jasper and Hampton Counties for our 2017 Parade tour.
Just as our area has grown and evolved over time, so too has our annual Parade of Homes. In addition to our printed guide, we are excited to bring you a newly redesigned website, where you can register and pay for your tour pass, get details about the homes and builders featured on the tour, and even download our Lowcountry Parade of Homes Tour App. This new and exciting feature will give you direct access to all tour details, including your tour pass and turn-by-turn directions, from your tablet or smartphone.
The members of the Hilton Head Area Home Builders Association take exceptional pride in building quality homes and look forward to annually putting their talents on display for all to see. It is the natural landscape, along with the breathtaking beaches, rivers and marshes that make the Lowcountry one of the top locations in the world live and visit. We hope that you enjoy this year’s Parade of Homes, and that you make time to take in the panoramic beauty as you go from one tour home to the next.
Continuing with our community outreach efforts, we will be donating a portion of all 2017 Parade of Homes Tour Ticket proceeds back into our community. In 2016 we donated nearly $2000.00 of Parade Ticket Sales to the Hilton Head HomeBuilders Education Foundation http://www.hbahh.com/education-foundation a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization administered by the Hilton Head Area HBA and formed to support and raise funds for continuing education throughout Beaufort, Jasper and Hampton Counties. A portion was also donated to Beaufort County PALS organization for their kids athletic programs where they assist families with financial need so their children can participate in different sports leagues throughout the year. Lastly, a portion was donated to the Hilton Head Civitan Group an organization of volunteer service clubs around the world, dedicated to helping people in their own communities. Civitans help wherever the need arises – from collecting food for a homeless shelter, to volunteering at local events, to building a playground for children with disabilities.
