Get those boats decked out for the 2021 Greater Topsail Christmas Flotilla, or come watch and enjoy the fun.
Greater Topsail Area Chamber of Commerce is once again hosting the Greater Topsail Christmas Flotilla on December 11. On this festive night, Soundside Park comes alive with decorations, music and a market with more than 40 vendors starting at 5 pm. The flotilla starts at around 5:30 pm.
Applications for boat entries in the flotilla are being accepted.
“The chamber is already in the spirit of the holidays as we plan another successful flotilla event,” says Tammie Parris, chairman of the Greater Topsail Area Chamber of Commerce board of directors.
“We welcome boaters in our area to deck out their watercraft in holiday lights and enter the flotilla.”
Boats will line up at 5 pm at Bush Marina in Topsail Beach and leave for Surf City’s Soundside Park for a 5:30 pm arrival.
All sizes of boats are welcomed; however, kayaks are not permitted in the flotilla due to safety concerns. The cost to enter a boat into the flotilla is $40 for non-chamber members or $20 for chamber members. Prizes will be awarded for the best decorations.
A captain’s informational meeting is set for December 9 at 7 p.m. at the chamber’s office, 13775 Highway 50, Suite 101.
Registration information is available on the Greater Topsail Area website, topsailchamber.org under the events tab.
