North Carolina Holiday Flotilla Weekend
November 23 - November 26
An annual tradition, Wrightsville Beach celebrates the Saturday after Thanksgiving with a fireworks display and a holiday flotilla contest of boats, decorated and lit up, all along the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway.
Our resort is the host and home of the premier viewing station for the parade and the fireworks and offers a full Thanksgiving Holiday Flotilla Weekend Package!
Four days and three nights of holiday festivities begin Thursday with a seafood-centric Thanksgiving feast. Package includes a three night stay, Thanksgiving feast, access to Friday’s Flotilla Launch Party with The Embers featuring Craig Woolard, and wine & hors d’oeuvres delivered to your room just before the parade Saturday. The Flotilla passes our South dock where judges score boats on lighting displays, music, theme and originality. Then fireworks fill the sky as the fleet and hundreds of spectator vessels celebrate the season. Breakfast three mornings and a late check out of 1pm are also included for Flotilla Package guests.
A tree lighting ceremony with Santa along with a Festival in the Park for families and children round out the weekend events.
Treat yourself to the best view in town for the celebration, on us!
