CHUBBUCK, Idaho (KIFI) - The Pocatello Chamber of Commerce and Eastern Idaho Homebuilders Association officially kicked off their Parade off Homes week with a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday morning.
Local Building Contractors and Home Seekers Magazine were in attendance to celebrate the hard work that contractors and construction crews have put into building several homes across the valley.
Deloy Stuart, the Executive Director of Building Contractors Association of Southeast Idaho, said homes have become a safe haven for many families due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Maybe a new home is in your plans in the next year or maybe three years down the road," Stuart said. “You can talk to our builders and have a casual conversation with them and get some ideas about what they can build for you.”
The event also highlights that construction for new homes in the Pocatello/Chubbuck area is in progress. It's also an opportunity for families in the area to see new homes on the market.
Tickets can be purchased for $15 each at any of the display homes. Purchasing a ticket at one of the major Parade sponsors will allow for a buy one, get one free ticket deal.
