Parking information for North Carolina Holiday Flotilla


Parked vehicles that obstruct a portion of the roadway can block access for emergency vehicles, particularly fire engines and ambulances that require more space than passenger cars. While obstructing any roadway can be dangerous, during the North Carolina Holiday Flotilla this problem is of particular concern on the narrow streets of South Harbor Island.

To accommodate the boats in the parade, the Wrightsville Beach drawbridge will be raised at 6:00 pm to allow the boat parade through the Intracoastal Waterway to Banks Channel.  The drawbridge could be up as long as 25 minutes to allow all the boats to make their way through.  Therefore, plan to arrive well in advance of the 6:00 pm boat parade kickoff.

During the Holiday Flotilla Boat Parade & Fireworks Show, signs will be posted on the following streets reminding motorists not to park on the pavement.

North Channel Drive
Island Drive
Shore Drive
South Channel Drive
Point Place
Live Oak Drive
Lindy Lane
Jasmine Place east of Live Oak Drive
Myrtle Court

Due to the serious public safety hazard posed by improperly parked vehicles, violators will be ticketed and/or towed.
