There are a multitude of reasons to love living the Landfall, NC life, and being so close to Wrightsville Beach is right up there, espcially this time of year! November 27th is the date for the start of the 26th Annual Holiday Flotilla, a three day event that includes a myriad of events. There’s a Tree Lighting Ceremony, Captain’s Meeting, and Flotilla Holiday Party hosted by the Blockade Runner and featuring Jim Quick & Coastline (a Wilmington, NC Blues, Soul, and R&B group). On Saturday there’s the Festival in the Park with food, crafts, and entertainment for kids, along with celebrity guest Trot Nixon, long time major league baseball player. The famous Parade of Boats is a vision of holiday excitement in their sometimes over-the-top decorations, and the fireworks that follow once the last ship has made it to safety are spectacular. Sunday morning the Blockade Runner once again hosts the Awards Ceremony when one super creative and lucky entrant will win the grand prize of a 4-night stay at The Reefs Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.
The Flotilla truly is a “Spectacular Light Show” on the waters of the Wrightsville Beach area and a once a year tradition you really have to see! For more information on the schedule of events and associated costs for participation in the party and the parade, please visit their website at ncholidayflotilla.org and join the rest of us in Wilmington, NC for the season’s kick off event!!Tags: events, festivals, social Posted by
