A stormy forecast has led the Wilmington-Cape Fear Home Builders Association to postpone tomorrow’s Taste of Home until May 11.
Taste of Home, described as a progressive dinner party by event officials, is the inaugural offering in the homebuilders association’s annual Parade of Homes
. With a strong likelihood of gusty thunderstorms tomorrow, event organizers announced today the decision to reschedule.
“Over the last 72 hours, we have monitored the weather very closely and solicited input from our local professional meteorologists,” said Cameron Moore, executive officer of the homebuilders association in a statement. “Based upon the current forecast models, our confidence level has faded to a point where we do not believe we can properly put the event on in a manner consistent with our expectations and those of our customers.”
The Parade of Homes will continue as planned this weekend and next.
The rescheduled Taste of Home will welcome attendees into eight model homes in Riverlights’ new Model Row from 5:30-9:30 p.m. on May 11. At each home, attendees can enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres from Middle of the Island Catering along with a craft beer pairing from Wilmington Brewing Company and a complimentary pour of wine.
Representing the next phase of development in Riverlights, the model homes showcased during the Taste of Home were designed to “optimize an indoor/outdoor lifestyle, with interior finishes, fixtures, design and amenities that appeal to today’s eclectic design styles,” according to a release for the event. Charter Building Group, Legacy Homes by Bill Clark, New Leaf Builders, Pulte Homes and Trusst Builder Group are among the local home builders highlighted on the new row of models.
Timed tickets for the rescheduled event cost $75 and can be purchased online
