CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- This weekend will bring fun for all ages down at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk. Crews are setting up rides, which will be open starting this weekend.
Businesses expect a surge of customers, as the rides, which have proven successful the last couple of summers, should attract more visitors.
State inspectors checked out the rides today to make sure everything was safe for visitors.
"I'm hoping that bringing all these rides will bring in all the tourists from around town, from North Carolina and around the rest of the country, hopefully, if they hear about it," said Jeff Clemens, owner of the store Fuzz Love in Carolina Beach.
The temporary amusement park features about two dozen rides. They should be ready to go Friday night.
