The 2014 Street of Dreams will open this Saturday (July 26th) in Happy Valley, Oregon. This year’s event features five gorgeous homes. Each home is unique, from traditional, to craftsman, to Mediterranean and Asian inspired. The home prices range from $850,000 to $1.5 million. The event is open daily from 10am to 9pm (tickets sold until 7:30 pm). The last day of the show is Sunday, August 24th. Admission to the Street of Dreams is $15 for adults. It’s free for children ten and under. Head over to our Street of Dreams contest page to enter to win tickets to attend the event.

A child from a low-income family enters first grade with an average of only 25 hours of one-to-one picture book reading. Compare this with 1,000 to 1,700 hours for a child from a typical middle-class home. That’s why from now until August 30th, Parr Lumber is collecting used and new books at our Portland metro area stores (see list below). The books will be given to the Children’s Book Bank. The donated books will then be distributed to children whom normally cannot afford books.
Parr Lumber is a proud sponsor of the NW Natural Parade of Homes, which starts next week. The event will run from July 11th to July 27th. Hours are 10am to 8pm Wednesday through Sunday (closed Monday’s and Tuesday’s). Regular price admission is $12, but you can get a discount with our $2 off coupon. Children 12 and under are free.
