Make plans to join the Texarkana Museum Systems for a "Merry Murder Mystery Dinner Party" on December 22.

It will be a night for ugly Christmas sweaters and a murder mystery beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the P. J. Ahern Home Museum. Get out those hideous sweaters and get ready for a great night out to solve a murder mystery. Tickets are $40 per person for non-members or $35 for TMS members. Couples are $75 for non-members or $70 for TMS Members.

Each guest will be assigned a character to play during the party and every guest will have the chance to gather clues and uncover the murderer. Even the ‘victim’ participates in the mystery.

In addition to solving the mystery, characters have various tasks or missions to complete during the game. At the end of the mystery, guests vote on the winner of the “Ugliest Christmas Sweater” contest. Although participation in the ugly sweater contest is optional, guests are encouraged to dress in keeping with the holiday theme and wear their tackiest Christmas gear.

Deadline for purchasing tickets is 5 p.m. December 20. Tickets can be purchased online at www. Texarkanamuseums.org. For more information, visit the Ahern Home Facebook page or call 903-793-4831. Tickets are limited so buy yours soon!
