Port Orchard was the seen of mayhem and skullduggery last weekend as the town played host to its Murder Mystery Weekend.

Hosted by the Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce, the doings included dinghy races, a pirate costume contest, a stunt show and cannon demonstration, courtesy of the Portland, Ore.-based Brotherhood of Oceanic Mercenaries (BOOM) Pirates.

The highlight was the Pirate Ball and Dance at Moondogs Too on Saturday night.
