The Lincoln Trail Home Buil­ders Association Parade of Homes features five homes on this year’s tour.

One home is from Murrell Homes, two from Bran­ting­ham Builders and two from The Ferguson Company.

“We are super excited about our parade of homes this year,” said Susan Hood, Lincoln Trail Home Builders Association executive officer.

Each home has different styles and layouts, she said.

Parade visitors can start at any home and proceed in any order. Tickets can be purchased at any of the homes and cost $5 each. Children 12 and younger are free with an adult ticket purchase.

The tour is from 3 to 7 p.m. Friday, noon to 7 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

“We have some outstanding builders and it’s so impressive to see their thought process and pull ideas from it,” Hood said.

If you are remodeling or build­ing a home, it’s a place to get good ideas, she said.

Builders are at the homes to answer questions and give information about where you can get some of the finishes and other elements used in the design, she said.

All the homes have Eliza­beth­town addresses.
