Friday Afternoon Club: Head’s Up for PO’s Murder Mystery Weekend

Port Orchard’s second annual Murder Mystery Tour, coming up Sept. 15 and 16, will require you to put on your Jack Sparrow-style thinking caps and engage in a little creative preparation.

The event, this year, features a pirate theme with a Land Lubbers Dingy Derby Race at 10 a.m. Sept. 15. At 2 p.m. the same day, there will be a Cap’n Jack Sparrow look-alike contest (with categories for men, women and children). The murder mystery will go on throughout the weekend, with the “who dun it” to be revealed at 4 p.m. Sunday. Saturday is also “talk like a pirate day” at the Farmer’s Market, with pirate story time at the library both days. A marketfaire, beer garden, knot tying demos, sword demos and music are just a few of the fun things going on during the event.

The Carlisle II foot ferry will celebrate its 90th anniversary Saturday at noon.

More on the dingy derby race: Think of it as a soap box derby with a pirate flavor. Teams will enter their decorated dingy derbies, with registration starting at 9 a.m. Sept. 15. The race is down Prospect street. Teams consist of four people. One must be inside driving while the other three provide pirate power and push. The cost is $25 a team. The chamber hopes businesses or clubs will challenge one another in this zany event, which is a fund raiser for the chamber.

Get complete rules and details for the race as well as more information on the Murder Mystery Weekend by calling the chamber at (360) 876-3505 or visiting www.portorchardchamber.com.
