Celebrate the holidays coastal-style at the NC Holiday Flotilla. This celebration kicks off Friday night with the Tree Lighting ceremony. The event is open to the public. The fun continues Saturday with the Festival in the Park featuring over 100 arts and craft vendors, an antique car show, a large play area for children with several inflatables, the always popular Arab Choo Choo, festival food and more. The Flotilla (lighted boat parade) begins Saturday at 6pm and is followed by a spectacular fireworks show. Don't forget to vote via text for both the "People's Choice" and "Crowd Favorite" awards once the parade starts.
