Those who enjoy scaring others may fit in with the cast of this year’s Fright Nights event. Organizers are holding a casting for scare actors — energetic male and female performers, 16 years and older, with all levels of experience. Both paid and volunteer positions are available.
Two forms of ID are required. Kids younger than 16 can audition but must have a parent who volunteers to work alongside them.

This year marks the 17th anniversary of Fright Nights at the South Florida Fairgrounds, which opens Thurs., Oct. 11, and continues every Thursday, Friday and Saturday through Oct. 27. Fright Nights started in a tent on the fairgrounds in 2002 and has grown into taking place in a 40,000 square foot Agriplex and on two acres of land on the fairgrounds.
The carnival of terror offers four new haunted houses each year. This year’s haunts are themed The Cuckoos Nest 2, Twisted Tales, Das Krankenhaus and The Mansion on Meadow Lane. In addition, the event includes scare zones, food, entertainment and midway carnival rides, which make Fright Nights the largest “scary event” in West Palm Beach.
