1920’s Murder Mystery

Friday, February 21 @ 5:30 PM

It’s the 1920’s and you’ve been invited to the biggest party of the year. When you arrive, you discover that the party has been cancelled as the host has just been murdered. Could it have been the result of a family quarrel? Did one of the guests find an opportunity to rid themselves of a rival? Would the staff have taken a chance to get revenge on their employer? Join us in this interactive Murder Mystery where you will get to try to solve the mystery while mixing and mingling with others. This event is for teens and adults. Dressing in 1920’s fashion is encouraged but not necessary. Registration is required.
