The season’s final Downtown Fergus Falls Mystery Tour takes place on Thursday, Sept. 13, 5:30 p.m. at the River Inn. Discover why the tour is becoming one of the area’s more unique events.

Even though Fergus Falls is known for its abundant churches, manicured lawns and well behaved citizens, it has a dark side that has largely been kept quiet that is until now.

This walk through the streets of downtown Fergus Falls rexplores some the town’s more colorful characters and notorious events. Characters and events come to life as stories involving scandel, illegal clubs, wayward women and even murder are told.

Due to the subject matter of these stories, the Mystery Tour is not suitable for young children. Adults, however, will love it.

The tour begins at the historic River Inn on Mill Street. Admission is $5. For more information call 218-736-6038 or visit
