Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio, (April 24, 2007) -- Murder and intrigue, unsavory characters and a scavenger hunt are all part of the fun during “Cinco de Murder,” a murder mystery weekend at the Lodge & Conference Center at Geneva-on-the-Lake, on Friday, May 4, through Sunday, May 6, 2007.

Guests are transported back in time to the 1800s Wild West as they search for clues that lead them to El Dorado, the Lost City of Gold. Dastardly villains and seedy characters, including the legendary Pancho Villa, compete with guests as clues are gathered by solving multiple murders and participating in a scavenger hunt throughout the Lodge and in the shops and restaurants of nearby Geneva-on-the-Lake.

On Saturday evening, guests return to the Lodge’s ballroom which has been transformed into “El Trago Grande Cantina.” Guests are treated to Mexican cuisine, casino-style games, music and dancing. Prizes for Best Costume, Most Outrageous Guess for the Murderer and more are awarded during Sunday’s breakfast banquet. Guests are encouraged to dress in attire that reflects the Mexican and Wild West culture of the 1800s.
