Parade of Homes

Held December 6 - 14, 2014
No plans for a 2015 Parade of Homes at this time.
    The 2014 Holiday Parade of Homes was held December 6-14 at The Gates of Windermere in LongCreek Plantation in Northeast Columbia.  The event featured three new homes in the $375,000 to $425,000 price range. The homes were furnished and decorated by local interior designers.

    A panel of judges met at the site before the gates opened to the public and walked through the homes to decide the winners of the Critics’ Choice Awards.  Listed below are the official results. We also took votes from attendees throughout the event in the Peoples’ Choice Awards.  Attendees were asked which home was their favorite and which had the best interior design.  See the results below.
