The Wake County Parade of Homes is one of the largest judged tours in the country.
Houses are judged prior to the first open house weekend based on criteria such as quality workmanship, floor plan and curb appeal. Winners of the gold, silver and bronze are announced during the Parade at an evening awards gala. Special design features are also highlighted in parade homes.
