The 10,000 Lakes Festival, a music and camping event that drew thousands to the Detroit Lakes area for seven summers, is on hiatus for the foreseeable future.


"At the end of the day, not enough people bought tickets," said Rand Levy, an owner and promoter of the festival that has been held at the Soo Pass Ranch outside of Detroit Lakes.

Levy said the event is off for 2010 and at this point there are no plans to revive it later.

He added, however, that could change.
