Carol Everhart, beach booster
Carol is a catalyst in turning Delaware’s beach community’s fall shoulder season into an extended season. Because she started the Sea Witch Halloween and Fiddler’s Festival in Rehoboth more than 20 years ago—as a consultant long before she was president and CEO of the Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce—extended fall weekends are now vibrant. There’s so much to do now. More visitors are opting to travel between Labor Day and Thanksgiving. The Sea Witch Festival is a big part of this. The hard part is having the vision to create something new, then making it grow. Carol had the vision. More visitors mean more business and that’s good for everyone. It’s really about making Sussex County a great place to visit year round.
