North Carolina Holiday Flotilla


Welcome to the North Carolina Holiday Flotilla at Wrightsville Beach. It is the Southern coastal version of a holiday parade – on water – at night.  

The Flotilla Experience is a weekend full of fun events with something for everyone including an annual tree lighting ceremony with a visit from Santa on Friday, along with the Festival in the Park for families and children on Saturday afternoon prior to the actual Flotilla.

The 35th Annual Flotilla weekend will be held on Saturday the 24th, 2018.  

When was the last time that you spent Thanksgiving weekend at the beach?!  Y’all come on down!

Our newest award is the Paula Sturdy Award for the Best Wrightsville Beach themed boat. This award was established from donations given by her family and friends. Because of their generosity, it will be funded for many years to come.
