The Shriners are expected to bring 3,500 attendees and guests to the Oceanfront Sept. 7 to 10, with more than 5,000 hotel room nights.

The association is also drumming up entertainment, free and open to the public. The fun kicks off Friday, Sept. 9, with the motorized vehicle competition at 8 a.m. in the Virginia Beach Convention Center’s west parking lot.
