Murder on the Lake - A Mystery Road Rally
Time & Location
About the Event
Join us for our Second Annual Road Rally and Rally for Serenity Celebration. This year's road rally will be filled with interrogations, scavenger hunts for clues, optional challenges to compete in, and photo taking.
This road rally DOES NOT require you to play/act out any parts. We provide the suspects, you solve the mystery.
Tour the beautiful sites surrounding Seneca Lake and its region! All while raising awareness for addiction and co-occurring mental health recovery and funds for the Serenity Scholarship. Call on your family and friends and assemble a team between (2-4 people). Have fun, find clues with a scavenger hunt, compete in challenges, take pictures, enjoy scenery, and solve a murder! End the tour with more fun at the Rally’s "Serenity Celebration" where Vendors, Food, Live Music performed by Detour, Chinese Auction, Cornhole Tournament, Informational Booths, and the ability to show your car will be waiting for you.
This year's event will start with three laps (paced) of the Watkins Glen International Raceway. After exiting the track, you will head off to solve a murder mystery. A scavenger hunt, challenges, pictures and selfies will all be a part of the fun - a camera phone is required!
Event Prices (fees include: track time, lunch, activities provided at stops and a free Rally for Serenity T-shirt)
