When you were a kid, a parade always meant waiting by the curbside for someone to walk or ride by tossing you sweets.
The Home Builders Association of Quincy redefined parades so the adults could get something sweet from it. That sweetness comes in the form of tips for home design.
The Parade of Homes has been a Quincy past-time for more than a decade. Each year, this event gives local builders a chance to showcase their work to the public.
The businesses aren't the only ones benefiting from the parade.
Homeowners take tips from what each house looks like, and could put these designs to use in their own humble abode.
Some visitors will keep the name of builder, and maybe even look to use them in the near future.
The parade spans over six different newly built homes across Quincy.
Each one a little different than the last.
Each year, they choose a different amount of houses to add into the mix. One year, up to 17 houses were in the parade.
The list of homes can be found at the Home Builders Association of Quincy's website.
