Your Daytona Beach Team is Working for You!
The Executive Teams for the 2017 and 2018 Imperial Sessions continue to work every month. There are many area's that continue to be developed as we are only 14 months away from arriving in Daytona Beach for the first Imperial Session to be held at a beach location since 1974 when it was held at Atlantic Beach, NJ. The City of Daytona Beach is gearing up for the arrival of Shriners in their Red Fezzes as their families enjoy the beautiful beaches of this wonderful destination. Numerous representatives form many Shrine Temples have already visited the Daytona Beach area in preparation of selecting their hotels and to select some of the restaurants they will be using for Temple  dinners.  This is a vacation destination, a place to bring your families . Many have expressed they are going to make this Imperial Session a Potentates Trip  for their Temple and bring large groups. Visit our website,  www.Imperial2017.com  for info on events and things to do.
The Daytona Beach Imperial Parade
The Daytona Beach Imperial Session Parade will be an evening parade down AIA (the street that goes along the beach) pass many of the hotels Shriners will be staying at.  We encourage Temples to bring their parade units for what will be an excellent parade route with many locals on hand to watch.  The parade will end at the convention and beach front Boardwalk area that is a great gathering area directly on the beach with food and drinks.  Daytona Beach area partners will be presenting a firework celebration display over the ocean when the parade is completed in celebration of the Shriners being in town.  This will be a fun night to remember, it will be much more than just a parade, it will be an event to share with you family and Shrine friends.
