Welcome to our first annual Dirty Dan Mystery Weekend.
The weekend begins when you open the Fairhaven newspaper and read: “A runner was found dead on Friday April 23rd at 9 am. on the bench next to the statue of Dan Harris*…” Thus begins the quest to find the murderer and their method.
Read the newspaper from front to back. You’ll also be given a map with locations where you can pick up printed clues to help you solve the mystery. All of the clue locations and the scene of the crime are within a half mile of Fairhaven Village Green.
The suspect photos will be in the “Fairhaven Observer”. As you walk around the village collecting your clues, you will encounter some of the suspects (i.e. characters) described in the newspaper. You never know who might have valuable information which will help you solve the mystery. But can you trust them all? Hmmmm, the real “criminal” is out there and they have every reason to lead you in the wrong direction!
When you think you have figured out who and how enter your solution on the official ballot. Place your completed form in one of the designated ballot boxes. Correct ballot solutions will be placed in a drawing for Grand Prizes ranging from Weekend Getaways and Merchant Gift Certificates to Dirty Dan Mystery Memorabilia.
All the other ‘incorrect ballots’ will be placed in a drawing for other prizes.
Registration opens online March 15, 2021. Early Bird Registration by April 15 – $12. Slow Loris Registration after April 15 – $17. All registration ends on April 23.
*’Dirty” Dan Harris is the founder of Fairhaven Village. A character himself, he died a natural death in 1890 in Los Angeles.
