Is the 2012 BIA Parade of Homes the only thing to do in Columbus?
Is the Parade of Homes the only thing to do in Columbus this week?  There are other things to do if new homes, old cars and decorating, decorating, decorating and more decorating are not your thing. Or maybe design is a better word than decorating.
There’s a Blues  and Jazz Festival this weekend.  Picnic with the Pops is opening at Columbus Commons this weekend. Another real estate event… Sunday, June 17th is an affordable housing open house.  Super Sunday   If you are looking for a home priced $150,000 or under, there will be open houses, 1:00 to 4:00.  Lots of them!

Experience Columbus ( is always a great place to find things to do, or detailed information about things to do in Columbus, Ohio.

There are the usual Farmer’s Markets this weekend too, including Worthington and Clintonville.  A Sunday event from the people who bring you the Clintonville Farmers’ Market?  A farm tour:

“1st farm tour for Clintonville Farmers’ Market producers: this Sunday, June 17th, at Swainway Urban Farm, 285 Canyon Drive in Clintonville, 43214, 2-4pm. See you there!”

A farm in Clintonville?  Yes in Clintonville, it’s an “Urban Farm”

This is not everything that is going on in Columbus.   If you have a “Thing” you want people to know about add it to ’365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio’ the page on Facebook.

The home pictured at the top is the Dominion Home Model at the 2012 BIA Parade of Homes.  The backyard is the Miller Troyer entry at the 2012 Parade of  Homes.  I do not have either home listed.    There are homes for sale in Meadows at Lewis Center. Did I mention I am a real estate agent?

The cute red Thunderbird was at a car show in Clintonville a couple of years ago.   I do not have it….
