The Noble and Most Singular Order of the Blue Carbuncle (NMSOBC) will gather at 11:15 a.m. Saturday, May 3, at Multnomah Falls, to commemorate 'Reichenbach Day' and honor the memory of Sherlock Holmes in his fateful flight with his archrival Professor Moriarty.

Participants are advised to meet at the parking lot, dressed in full Victorian mourning attire (or all black clothing).

A mock funeral procession will begin from the parking lot at 11:30 a.m. and a full ceremony will be held at the lower bridge at noon. A Scottish piper will lead the procession up and back.
