June 02, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Cape Cod Bay, MA – Fans of CSI (Crime Scene Investigators) and other forensic enthusiasts, mark your calendars. The 17 Bed & Breakfasts of Historic Cape Cod Bay are plotting a 3-day murder mystery extravaganza that will take place October 26-28, 2007. Titled “Marriage Can Be Murder” the whodunit revolves around the Halloween wedding festivities of a prominent, though aging, Hollywood actress and a “one-hit wonder” Country and Western singer.

The “wedding reception” will be held Friday night at the Belfry Bistro, an award winning restaurant set inside a renovated church in Sandwich village. Wedding guests are asked to dress appropriately as friends of either the bride or groom, and will be treated to a 3-course gourmet dinner and champagne toast in their honor. Sometime during the evening a murder takes place.

On Saturday, wedding guests are asked to assist local constables in tracking down the murderer by visiting the 17 Bed & Breakfasts of Historic Cape Cod Bay and gathering clues from the innkeepers, who will be in character, to help solve the crime.

On Sunday it's all aboard! Wedding guests will hop on the Cape Cod Railroad for a gourmet brunch and scenic train ride. During the trip, the police arrive to arrest the murderer and reveal the clues that led them to the killer.

The “Marriage Can Be Murder” package includes two nights’ accommodations, 3-course dinner and champagne toast Friday night, breakfast at the inns on Saturday followed by the “murder investigation”, and the scenic rail trip on the Cape Cod Railroad’s Sunday Brunch Train.

The Bed and Breakfasts of Historic Cape Cod Bay Association was founded in April of 2006 for the sole purpose of marketing and promoting the historic district along the Old Kings Highway (Route 6A), from Sandwich to Brewster.
