WebXtra: Vacationing in your backyard

By Philippe Djegal - email

BULLARD, TX (KLTV) - Home builders are asking, "Why spend thousands of dollars on vacationing each year, when you can invest in your backyard and bring the vacation to your home?"

Counting down to Tyler's 56th Annual Parade of Homes, we are taking a sneak peek at what to expect during the parade. Today, the focus is outdoor kitchens and retreats.

The Parade will take place June 6-14. Hours will be: Saturdays 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.; Sundays 2 - 6 p.m.; Monday, Wednesday and Friday 6 - 9 p.m.; and Tuesday and Thursday 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. and 6 - 9 p.m.
