Wrightsville Beach, NC – The 39th North Carolina Holiday Flotilla, Zambelli Fireworks, and Airlie Gardens’ Enchanted Airlie launched the coastal holiday season on Thanksgiving weekend at Wrightsville Beach.

“The weather was perfect, and the parade of boats was amazing,” added Bill Baggett, long-time Flotilla supporter and co-owner of Blockade Runner Beach Resort. “The crowd was larger than ever, and the holiday season is off to a great start.”
