Today’s trending colors, flooring, textures and all other facets of home design will be center stage during the annual D-FW Showcase Tour of Homes happening this April.

Models and homes available for sale in Trinity Falls northwest of McKinney and Arlington’s Viridian — both communities of the Johnson Development Corp. —will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays.

In addition to home tours, an array of free public events will have something for everyone, including family canines, nature lovers and those with a sweet tooth.

“Johnson Development is known for communities that offer deluxe amenities and a vibrant resident lifestyle navigated by community Directors of Fun,” said Debra Meers, Marketing Director for Viridian. “The more than one dozen public events we’re hosting during the showcase home tour highlight that lifestyle.”

Trinity Falls is a 2,000-acre community located along the banks of the East Fork Trinity River minutes from Highway 380, downtown McKinney and Sam Rayburn Tollway. In addition to tours of models touting homes priced from the upper $200,000s, people can enjoy the Springtime in Trinity Falls Earth Day celebration Saturday, April 21, that includes a butterfly release, food trucks, tree planting and children’s activities. The community also will host a Doggie Day Camp event April 28 with a canine costume contest and pet adoptions.

Viridian, designated a Certified Gold Signature Sanctuary by Audubon International, is a 2,000-acre community encompassing five lakes, open spaces, trails, rivers and wetlands. The community is hosting events each weekend, including a Sugar Social April 7 with ice cream and cupcakes and an Earth Day event April 14 that focuses on green design and sustainable living. An Artisan Market April 21 will include goat yoga and a Mother Earth-themed market. The Bio Blitz event starts with a campout in the community April 27 and continues with nature-themed mini-field trips, seminars and more April 28. A Yappy Social on April 28 will be a chance for families to adopt a pet. Other Viridian events include the opening of the Viridian Sailing Center April 7, a Movie in the Park April 13, the Arlington Young Life 5K April 14, a Saturday Social April 21, and a container gardening class and community planting happening April 28.
