Egypt and Wahabi Shriners are excited to invite all nobles, ladies and their families to the 142nd Imperial Session in Tampa, to share our glorious sunshine and mild, sub-tropical climate.
The 142nd Imperial Session Marketplace will be located on the main level of the Tampa Convention Center.
The Shrine Parade in Tampa will be on July 4th in Historic Ybor City, known as Tampa's Latin Quarter for over a century. Ybor City is an exotic blend of aromas, sights, and sounds. This area host several parades each year and is a good fit for our Shrine parade. The parade route will be down 7th Ave., the main street of the Historic District. The Shriners will be the July 4th parade for the city. This should provide for a large viewing audience of Tampa citizens along with our visiting Shriners. The Parade will step off at 6:00 pm with fireworks to follow. Ybor City is located approximately one mile for the Convention Center area where the fireworks are traditionally held. Parade updates will be posted, as final arrangements are complete. Make your plans to come to Ybor City and enjoy the parade.
What better way to relax after a full day at the session than to spend some leisure time with your fellow Shriners and their families. The rules are different in Florida and we have the perfect venue for relaxing. Put on your shorts, tee shirts and walking shoes and join us at the Sail Pavilion in front of the Convention Center.
We are pleased to announce the Representatives Evening will be an evening of entertainment in the East Hall of the Tampa Convention Center on Wednesday, July 5, 2016.
The session hall is also on this level and should provide a steady flow of traffic for the marketplace. Please consider joining us in Tampa as an exhibitor as Tampa welcomes the Shriners back to their home town.
