What is the Carolina Beach Christmas Flotilla, you may ask? It's an annual festive parade on the water, where local fishing boat and pleasure craft owners decorate their vessels with beautiful, twinkling light displays. Captains cruise their crafts along the Intracoastal Waterway, from Snows Cut to the Carolina Beach Boast Basin and back.
Participants in the Christmas Flotilla will be able to show off their holiday decorating skills, compete for prizes, and best of all, spread joy and cheer for the start of the holiday season!
The annual Christmas Flotilla will take place at 6 pm on Saturday, December 5, 2015.
