“This event has become a favorite and we love that so many people dress up as one of the CLUE characters!” says Carrie Schulstad, Executive Director of the Downtown Camas Association (DCA). “It’s fun to come together after the hustle and bustle of the holidays and enjoy time together figuring out the mystery. Young and old alike enjoy the challenge of the clues and finding out “whodunit”. We thank Cake Happy for sponsoring the free mini-cupcakes which make the event that much sweeter!”
