Kick off the beginning of the holiday season right this Saturday, December 1st, for the Island of Lights Christmas Flotilla! Starting in Carolina Beach Boat Basin and finishing in Snow’s Cut, this family fun annual tradition is sure to bring smiles to the rosy cheeks of all who attend. This flotilla features our community’s fishing boats and “pleasure crafts” decorated to the nine’s with colorful lights and displays. All entered in this flotilla have the chance to win prizes and there will also be a panel of judges to choose the best decorated vessel! The Island of Lights Christmas Flotilla will begin at 6:00pm and is free to all spectators. For more information, you can visit their event site.
