Follow the clues, unearth a ‘Whale of a Tail’

Langley Murder Mystery Weekend set Feb. 24-25

Langley’s Murder Mystery Weekend Feb. 24-25 this year is big.

Whale size big.

Called “A Whale of A Tale,” the annual whodunit takes clue-seekers around Langley’s stores, parks and other locations to figure out the mystery behind recently unearthed skeletons found with a whale harpoon and ivory necklaces.

Dressed-up characters can be interviewed and a sensational so-called dying “newspaper” is filled with alternative facts and alleged quotes.

The popular mystery weekend, in its 34th year, is expected to attract about 2,000 amateur detectives, according to the Langley Chamber of Commerce, sponsor of the event.

General tickets are $10; $8 for active military, seniors 60 and over and children. Tickets can be purchased Feb. 24-25 at the Langley Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center, 208 Anthes Ave., known temporarily as Mystery Weekend Headquarters.

Guesses on solving the murder must be entered on official entry form to Mystery Weekend Headquarters by 4 p.m. Sunday.

Correct solutions are placed in a drawing for grand prizes; incorrect solutions may also win other prizes.

Prize drawing will take place after the solution at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 25 at Whidbey Children’s Theater auditorium.

Advance tickets and more information are available at www.visitlangleycom
