A tangled web of missteps and hidden clues must be unraveled to discover a killer during Mistletoe State Park's second annual Murder Mystery weekend event starting Sept. 19.
The first mysterious murder took place at the Appling park in February. Event organizer Marilyn Grau said the event was attended by couples, people and their grandchildren, families and college students.
"I had planned to do another one in 2009, but the folks who came in February didn't want to wait that long," said Grau.
Murder on the Haunted Trail starts the evening of Sept. 19 and concludes the following afternoon.
"The whodunit begins with supper on Friday night, followed by ghost stories around the campfire and a short and easy hike down a dark, haunted trail," said Grau. "Then a most unfortunate thing happens: a little matter of murder. It's up to the gang to figure out 'whodunit' by Saturday afternoon when we're finished."
Participants will enjoy the park and attend other park activities and programs while searching for clues.
Cost of the event is $25 and will include three meals, program materials and prizes for winners.
A $3 per car park pass is additional. Campsites are available for those individuals who want to stay at the park.
To register for the event, contact Grau at (706) 868-0120 before Monday or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Space is limited to the first 30 registrants.
