Build It and They Will Come...to Carolina Beach

We learned some exciting news over the last couple weeks concerning the Carolina Beach Boardwalk. Snow's Cut Monthly was the first to report that an amusement company was looking at the CB boardwalk area to set up rides/entertainment booths for this year's summer season. And in last week's Island Gazette, the paper provided a layout of the proposed amusement area and informed us of the names of the the two companies looking to come to CB, Megerle’s Magic and Hildebrand Rides from Gibsonton, Florida.

Well, rumor has it that another amusement company with a strong international presence is also exploring the possibility of setting up rides in Carolina Beach.

What will happen? Who knows...but it does show that our town is beginning to get noticed thanks to the ongoing improvements being made around town. And with this increased attention will come the ability to draw appropriate businesses that will improve our quality of life, help increase tourism revenues, and ultimately help our local businesses. As I've said many times on this blog...the future is very bright for Carolina Beach and for all of Pleasure Island.

Kudos to all who are making it happen!
