There's no dress code, so don't worry if you don't have any clothes to fit the murder mystery vibe. However, getting dressed up is encouraged in holiday colors and ugly sweaters is encouraged.

This isn't just a murder mystery, either! There will be a bunch of other fun events to take part in that night, including a make-your-own ugly sweater station. There will also be an 'Awkward Family Photo Booth' for you to take your last minute holiday card photo or to take a photo as a souvenir!

As for that, here's the major mystery you will (hopefully) be solving:

Help! There has been murder! The victim is Samantha Jingle, famous for her holiday hotdish and love of bird sweaters. Jingle was found in her home on Clause Way, right here in Duluth, with a burning hotdish in the oven. The suspects have been assembled—it's up to you to solve the mystery and identify the guilty party.

Of course, because this is Minnesota and we are known for our love of hot dish, it only makes sense that it is all hot dish themed. The event will take place at the Duluth Depot at 530 West Michigan Street.
