27th Annual Coastal Christmas Flotilla
New Bern Parks & Recreation is pleased to bring you the 27th Annual Coastal Christmas Flotilla on December 3th. The Flotilla was founded in 1984 by The Swiss Bear and a number of boaters from the Eastern Carolina Yacht Club. These groups, in association with the avid boaters of the New Bern area, have made this one of the premiere holiday events in Eastern North Carolina. This tradition has been carried on by the Lower Neuse Initiative, and for the past 9 years, New Bern Parks & Recreation. The flotilla features various types of water craft, from small boats to large yachts, all decorated in their own unique way. The parade of boats will start at the Eastern Carolina Yacht Club, sail down the Trent River past the Hilton New Bern/Riverfront approximately 6:00pm, then on to Union Point Park, Council Bluff Green Park, and back. Throughout this day full of festive events, the downtown stores will be open to Christmas shoppers. The 27th Annual Coastal Christmas Flotilla would not be possible without our dedicated supporters.
