9781888475197: I Loathe a Parade: Everything you need to host a 4th of July Murder Mystery!

Can you solve the case called "I Loathe a Parade"? Here's the scenario: This 4th of July murder mystery takes place in Elmtown, a community of 12,000 people noted for its annual Independence Day parade. Mayor Joe Possumz, who's just announced that he'll be running for his fourth term in the fall elections, is in the reviewing stand, waving at the parade while wearing his now-famous, red-white-and-blue bowtie. As the final drum-and-bugle corps passes by, the mayor bites into a hot dog coated with traditional brown mustard and topped off with a dark-green dill pickle. When he finishes the culinary treat, Possumz wipes the perspiration off his brow, smiles faintly at the crowd and collapses. To the amazement of those nearby, the local doctor rushes to him, checks for a pulse, and pronounces him dead. More about the Elmtown parade: Twelve years ago, when Mayor Possumz was first elected to office, the Elmtown parade was a ten-minute affair, consisting of four units and a lot of fire trucks. With the mayor's backing, the parade has become a holiday extravaganza. The 80-plus units in the parade now take two hours to pass by the official civic reviewing stand, strategically positioned in front of City Hall where the mayor gazes with pride at the event that he has built and nurtured. But, any politician is only as secure as his last controversial decision ... and the mayor has made many enemies over the years. Could one of them have done him in as he was enjoying the latest version of his most noteworthy accomplishment? The suspects . . . Rhonda Ripley - Owner of Horsebalm Stables She and her team of riders have been fixtures in the parade for the last 10 years. Rocky the Clown - A favorite with the kids of Elmtown Behind the greasepaint is alderman Rockwell Kenmore, who planned on running against the mayor in the upcoming election. Mona Minski - Head of the Elmtown "Marching Mommas" Every 4th of July, she relives her cheerleading days at Elmtown High School by marching in the parade and leading cheers all the way down Elm Street. Albert Ames - Leader of the Elmtown Civic Band He plays the piccolo and is renowned for his solo in "Stars and Stripes Forever." Albert knows when anything in Elmtown is off-key. Dottie Pinewood - Cubmaster of Cub Scout Pack 1776 She takes pride in winning the annual prize for best float in the 4th of July parade. Vern Fullerton - The part-time weatherman at the local TV station, WORM He was the grand marshal in the parade, riding in a vintage Model A Ford. ------------------------------------------------- This complete Murder Mystery Party Kit from Mysteries on the Net contains everything you need to host you own event at home or in a large facility.

About the Author:

Jack Pachuta is a mysterious guy. Since a dark and stormy night in 1982, he has authored and facilitated murder mystery events for clients across the United States and Canada. Plus, he sells his complete murder mystery party kits around the world via his websites. In his alter-ego as a speaker, trainer and consultant, he partners his mysteries with unique learning experiences that focus on team building, communications, negotiations and sales. These mystery seminars convey key skills in non-threatening, fun-filled programs. Holding masters degrees from the University of Southern California and Michigan State University, Jack's client base includes Jockey International, Pepsico, ShopKo Stores, the Asia-Pacific Institute for Management Development in Singapore, Thomson Audio Products Hong Kong, Connex of Romania, Multi-Finance of Athens, Greece - and many, many more. An inveterate games player, Jack enjoys the challenge of solving puzzles and weaving together facts and details into memorable, entertaining experiences. He regularly conducts mystery writing boot camps during which he shares his unique insights about developing and facilitating murder mystery parties. Jack met his English wife, Renira, over breakfast in Portugal while they were both living in Germany. They now have two daughters, a cat named Zoe and a house bordering a Christmas tree farm near Lake Michigan in southeastern Wisconsin where Jack maintains his subterranean world headquarters. (Some people call it his basement office.) Jack is also an award-winning printmaker and a member of both the Cedarburg Artists Guild and the League of Milwaukee Artists.
