I created a website for it that is still up and gets a hit every now and then.
I guess my question to the 'hood as a whole is: is there any interest in doing something like this? Perhaps in a smaller, more manageable fashion this year to get things started and let it grow as time goes on.
With the success of the Main Street Cruise, this may be another way to bring outside folks to our little slice of heaven (or hell for purposes of the weekend).
My original post to MetroJacksonville seeking volunteers is included below along with the website address.
Haunted Springfield has plans for fabulous events all over Springfield and DownTown! Come join the group, volunteer where and when you can, and spread the word!
Do you have great contacts with Springfield and downtown businesses? Want to work with businesses on promotions/exposure for the weekend? we have a group for that!
Do you love to act or dress up? Know people who do? Sign up for the tour group!

Want to help promote the Haunted Springfield weekend? Dress up and hand out event flyers at Artwalk, RAM!
Like movies and sound? Sing up for the Haunted Springfield Street Movie group!
Know some business/building owners on Main who would allow us to use their vacant buildings/store fronts as art showcases and show off the buildings/business potential? There is a Main St group you can join.
Have performing art students who would love to put on a spooky dance/concert/act? We have a group for that!
Got some good ghost or scary stories in the hood- well we want those too!
There is something for everyone, get involved, sign up, and lets kick off the first annual Haunted Springfield in grand style!
