The WNC Oasis Shriners are bringing their Spring Ceremonial, induction of new members and parade to the town on Friday, June 1 and Saturday, June 2.

The Shriners Parade will take place along Main Street starting at 2 p.m. on Saturday. The Saturday afternoon parade will include the Lady Shriners, the famous Shriners little cars, Oasis Clowns, Gator Patrol, Dune Cats and Scooter Patrol, along with the Oasis Band.

Following the parade there will be “Fez-tivities” in Memorial Park, including miniature Shriner cars and trucks on display, music and clowns.

Oasis Potentate Sir Johnny Burgess has accepted a challenge from the Oasis Membership Team: If the Oasis adds 150 new members at the Ceremonial, Burgess will kiss a camel!
