Parade of Homes in Oklahoma City area welcomes ‘looky-loos’

Signs of the times in the housing market: left, Parade of Homes Spring Festival; the builder of this entry at 2433 Amante Court in Ednond, Ripple Creek Homes; the Realtor's "Sold" sign.

The housing market may be unprecedented — a shortage of homes for sale, high demand and rising prices during a pandemic — but one thing about the Parade of Homes Spring Festival is quite “precedented”: You can still look for free.

The parade wraps up the second of two long weekends Friday-Sunday with about 50 new houses open to the public from 1 to 7 p.m. each day. Entries are from Edmond to Norman and Yukon to Choctaw. Coronavirus precautions are being observed.

The featured addition is Cross Timbers — with three neighborhoods, the Ridge, the Lakes and Creekside — on the south side of Covell Road between Sooner and Coltrane roads in Edmond. The parade book is online, with description and maps to the homes, and available at OnCue stores.
