With a grand finale over Banks Channel by Zambelli fireworks, sponsored by ALPHA MORTGAGE CORPORATION , the 2000 Holiday Flotilla went forward in the rain on Saturday, November 25th. Over 10 decorated yachts paraded down the Intercoastal Waterway drawing participants and spectators from throughout the state and region. Festivities included a day long festival in the Wrightsville Beach Municipal Park, as well as numerous parties and celebrations.

Judging took place at the host hotel, the Blockade Runner Beach Resort, where there was a sponsor/boat captain party on Friday night featuring the band "M-Street".
