Can you solve the murder?

Join us by the river after dark as the park is awash in red and dripping with sinister sounds. Murder is afoot in Promenade Park this eerie night. Your help is needed to solve the originally crafted murder mystery inspired by the short story “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allan Poe. You will be set loose in the park to explore the murder scene, collect evidence, find clues, solve puzzles, and interrogate the suspects. Enjoy music, heavy hors d’oevres, and a glass of absinthe served through a traditional absinthe fountain—just the way Edgar Allan Poe drank it. Costumes are encouraged (but not required) and prizes will be awarded for best costume and best mystery-solvers. A cash bar will be available. Ages 21+.  Sign up by October 22 at or 427-6000. Fee: $75/person or $70/person if registering 2 or more. Min. 50. Max. 95. Proceeds support future Riverfront youth educational programming.
