The 35th annual North Carolina Holiday Flotilla, another Thanksgiving week tradition, will be held on Saturday.

Saturday night’s North Carolina Holiday Flotilla features a procession of creatively decorated yachts and watercraft, each glittering with thousands of lights, slowly motoring past an estimated crowd more than 50,000.
