Join Silver Bell Hollow this Saturday for an evening filled with cuddly alpacas, tasty treats, fiber art, mystery, and Halloween themed FUN!

Silver Bell Hollow (13111 311th St. W Illinois City) Halloween Murder Mystery & Fiber Art Event is happening this Saturday Oct 27 from 5-9 p.m.

Guests will be immersed in a murder mystery experience as they become the characters in the story and work together to figure out “who dunnit”! Prior to the event, each guest will be sent background information and costume suggestions for the character he or she has been assigned. As guests arrive at the event, they will have an opportunity to meet the alpacas of Silver Bell Hollow and take plenty of photos. Then let they fun begin! Guests will be given three rounds of clues to help solve the mystery as they indulge in tasty treats, learn basic needle felting techniques, and create 2D pumpkins using cookie cutter forms and an alpaca fiber/wool blend.

Pre-registration is required for this event. The cost to participate is $40 per guest or $35 each for groups of 2 or more. For more information, please visit
