Murder on the Mississippi

Last year the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area and Mississippi Park Connection worked with Fearless Comedy Productions to create an interactive murder mystery on one of the Padelford Riverboats. You could enjoy the gorgeous river views while having a few laughs, solving a mystery and learning about trivia for our park’s corridor.

This summer, Murder on the Mississippi is back with a new show. Set during World War II audience members will have to figure out who is their contact and who is the German spy who stole plans from the Cargill Shipyards. You can come dressed up in costume and enjoy a special cocktail to fit the theme of the show. Park rangers will be on hand to help answer any questions about the river and point out the many bald eagles along the way.

Murder on the Mississippi offers the unique opportunity to experience Mississippi National River and Recreation Area in a fun and interactive way. Experience the rich cultural and natural heritage of the Mississippi River aboard a Padelford riverboat and connect with your community!
