Oregon Coast Aquarium and Nye Beach Together on Murder Mystery Festival

Published 10/05/2010

(Newport, Oregon) - There will be a murder in Newport this weekend, and the public is asked to help solve the case in both Nye Beach (pictured above) and the Oregon Coast Aquarium.

October 8 and 9 are the dates of the Nye Beach Murder Mystery – a benefit for the Aquarium and Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP). It’s an interactive “whodunit” of sorts, a mystery set in 1898 where a colorful local character gets whacked at nearby farm.

There will be a seasonal spooky aspect to this storyline, as the murder takes place at a well on the farm. This well is associated with many unsubstantiated local legends, disappearances, and ghost stories. Some even claim it is the most haunted well in Oregon

It’s all based on the murder mystery, “Body in the Bloody Water Well” written by Ram Papish. The spring murder mystery in Nye Beach has proven so popular that local officials decided to resurrect the festival and combine it with this benefit aspect.

Participants are encouraged to wear 1890’s costumes throughout the event, and the cast will later vote for best costume at the “Big Reveal” Saturday night.

Oregon Coast Aquarium

The event begins Friday, October 8 at 7 p.m. at the Oregon Coast Aquarium with a Sleuth Social, where guests will get to go all “CSI” on the suspects and interrogate them. Bring your best “good cop, bad cop” routine out for this one. All this happens while enjoying light appetizers and no host beverages. Admission is $15 for adults and $8 for youths 5-15 years old. Children under 5 years old are free.

The festival continues on Saturday morning when guests pick up clue packets at Nye Cottage Beads in Nye Beach (on Coast Street) at 9 a.m. Participants will then go digging for the murderer by visiting designated merchants in the Nye Beach area from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. and meet suspects – in full character and costume - to gather clues.

Saturday evening at 7 p.m. brings the “Big Reveal,” where the person responsible for the crime will be revealed and prizes will be awarded for best costume at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. There will also be a raffle and photo opportunities for participants.

Murder mystery packets are $10 and available at Nye Cottage in Nye Beach. The packet includes two sleuth cards good for admission into the Aquarium for the Big Reveal Saturday night and discounts from local area merchants. For more information call 541-265-6262.
