LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Next weekend would have been the beginning of Lee Civic Center's 3rd annual Fright Nights, complete with a haunted house, maze, games and music.
This year, they had everything they needed, except one key component: volunteers.
Without 50 volunteers to keep the event alive, staff were forced to cancel.
General Manager Artie McIntyre said the issues for some potential volunteers were time-commitment and money.
Some couldn't guarantee they could make it unless they were paid.
McIntyre said it was a difficult decision to cancel, but the Fair Association didn't want to put on an event that wasn't top-notch.
Despite a setback this year, organizers are looking towards 2011, and have already started planning and recruiting volunteers.
