The parade of homes wrapped up Sunday.

The event gave house hunters or re-modelers the chance to learn more about the latest trends in home design.

And with the ongoing drought many homes this year focused on water conservation.

One home in the parade even came with it's own water well so when landscaping gets put in residents can keep it green without using city water.

The home also comes with a rain collection system that holds 800 gallons of water.

Filling it up takes very little effort as recent rains have topped off the tanks.

The contractor says being able to keep a green lawn is now a big selling point for homes.

“Curb appeal especially from the fronts a big deal and nowadays more and more backyards and outdoor kitchens and patio's are bigger and bigger aspect of the homes people are living at their homes, they want to get out, they want to grill,” says Contractor Doug McCulloch.

The event raised money for Habitat for Humanity.
