Langley Mystery Weekend – 2017
February 25 – 26
People question a suspect in the 2015 mystery, “No Laughing Murder.”
Is he a witness, or a suspect?
A Whole Town Whodunnit
Langley Mystery Weekend features a whole town as the scene for a mystery for amateurs to solve! And the town has been doing this for several decades! A new creative mystery unfolds each year and visitors search for clues inside stores, and question suspects on the streets of Langley. Around that sleuthing, visitors also sneak in a little downtown shopping and a little sightseeing in “The Village by the Sea.”
The mystery unfolds on Saturday morning, with a crime scene and a murder victim. Who did what? Who saw what? It’s all tongue-in-cheek fun. The only real crimes are some awful puns and some silly costumes. By the afternoon, the coroner’s report details the crime and offers new clues. By Sunday afternoon, the case is solved, the “villain” identified and visitors have spent a happy weekend in the scenic town of Langley.
The mystery is often an opportunity for satire and no topic is safe.
The 2017 Mystery – Big Mystery in a Small Town
Residents are baffled by large muddy footprints appearing all over the tiny town since the first of the year. While some locals have reported sightings of “Big Foot” in the nearby woods, others are saying it is all a publicity stunt to promote the first International Science Fiction Arts & Technology convention scheduled for the last week of February.
Unfortunately, whether it is a Big Foot or a big hoax, the body found behind the local coffee shop is no joke and the police have called in retired Detective I. B. Fuzz to investigate this 33rd in a series of murders which have plagued Langley in recent decades.
