Visit Us During Parade of Homes

We invite you to tour the beautiful new furnished model homes from award-winning builders in any of the exceptional Wichita neighborhoods developed by J Russell Communities. All models in our new home communities will be open during Parade of Homes hours.

What to Expect

Each year, the Parade of Homes showcases more than 100 new homes from Wichita’s leading home builders. This is the time when builders debut their newest and best home designs, many of which can be customized. The model homes are often furnished, and representatives are usually on-site to answer your questions. Many of the models are priced to sell, or you can choose to build your favorite floor plan.
