The Denver Parade of Homes has been a well-loved tradition for 23 years.Â In the past it gave Denverites the chance to see how the other half lives, as well as providing us with great design and landscaping ideas.Â This year it is all that and more.Â The Parade of Homes now features 57 homes, ranging from $200,000 to $6 million.Â There is something for everyone.Â You can live out your fantasies, look at homes you can actually afford, and enjoy a little BBQ!
