GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — Earlier this week, hundreds of Shriners from throughout the Midwest headed to Green Bay, but not in the cars they drove in today’s parade.

Today was the last day of the Midwest Shrine Association Convention held in Green Bay.

They wrapped up this morning with a parade that followed days of celebration.

“We want the community to see what fun we have celebrating 150 years of Shriners and 100 years of Shriners hospitals for children,” said Gary Fehl, public relations director for the local Beja Shriners.

In the parade were mini cars, mini bikes, and even a fire-breathing dragon.

The Beja Shriners hosted this year's convention.

The Last few days have been nothing but fun for the Midwest Shriners, all while getting to promote their philanthropy, the Shriners hospitals for children.
