BAY CITY CELEBRATES 7TH ANNIVERSARY

Mainland Community Celebrates with Parade, Live Music



Bay City, the first project of the "Linden Department of Public Works," is entering it's 7th year as part of Second Life. To Celebrate, Residents and friends of the popular mainland community will host their annual parade as well as a live music event.

Anniversary participants are asked to gather at noon SLT/PDT on Sunday, the 17th of May, to lineup for the parade at the bandshell in Bay City - Harwich. The parade will make its way down Route 66 beginning at 12:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, concluding at the Bay City Fairgrounds in the North Channel region.

A live concert will kick off at 1:30 p.m. SLT/PDT at the Bay City Fairgrounds, featuring a trio of live acts as well as DJ Marx Dudek providing music leading into the event. 

All Residents of the Second Life grid are welcomed to participate. Celebration goods are available at the Bay City Community Center, in the Daley Bay region, for those who wish to be a part of the parade, and ample viewing area is provided. The music event is also open to all who desire to attend -- not only Residents of Bay City

Page 2 Editorial: The Second Life Seasons

Seasons are always funny things in Second Life. Aside from us being part of a global community where all sorts of weather is being experienced outside of our world, there are some truisms about the Second Life seasons that tell more about humans than about the weather.

So while May might be when Spring is kicking into high gear for many on the grid (or Autumnal weather for our down-under Residents), Spring in Second Life started sometime in January as people decided they'd had quite enough of the winter weather.

Indeed, it's largely already Summer in SL, and will likely remain so until around mid-August, when it becomes Autumn. No, actually it becomes Hallowe'en season. 

That'll last until, oh, the 20th of October or so (You'd think the 31st, but no). At that point, it becomes Christmas season, and we start 'round once again.

I'm not complaining about this, as much as it might sound like I am. If anything, I find it funny how we shape the seasons in a world where we're allowed such power.
