Bay City's 9th Anniversary Celebration
In May of 2008 the Linden Department of Public Works unveiled its first project, the themed city area on the Second Life® Mainland known as Bay City. In May of 2017, please help us celebrate Bay City's 9th Anniversary! Join us in a parade on Sunday, May 21st at 12:30 PM, starting from the band-shell in Bay City - Harwich and traveling down Route 66 and Park Place to the Bay City Fairgrounds at North Channel! Here is a handy traveler's map for the parade route!
Sunday, 21st May at 12:00 p.m. (Noon) SLT
Meet at the bandshell in Bay City - Harwich, with additional room in Bay City - Dennis, Bay City - Tisbury, and Bay City - Edgartown. The parade will begin promptly at 12:30 pm. SLT.
Don't feel quite like the march? We have several handy parade viewing areas! Here's LMs to two of them:
Orleans Viewing Point
Falconmoon Viewing Point
Parade will conclude in the North Channel -- but hang around for fun and festivities at the Bay City Fairgrounds! Performing will be MARX DUDEK from 12:30-1:30 p.m. SLT, followed by CHRISTOV KOHNKE from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., WINSTON ACKLAND from 2:30-3:30 p.m. SLT, and finally one more surprise guest from 3:30-4:30 p.m. SLT.
Who can participate?
Bay Citizens, Nova Albions, Shermervillians, Blumfeldians, Nautilods, and *all* residents of the Second Life Grid are welcome!
What do you want?
Festive outfits, unique avatars, costumes, floats, Macy's parade-style balloons, marching bands, stilt walkers, dancers, kids on bikes, dancers, drill teams -- you name it! Come and represent your own special part of Second Life!
How could I make a float?
Best bet is to make 'em as a wearable attachment, not a vehicle. Due to some of the difficulties with 'em last year, we would prefer to avoid vehicles as much as possible. Also, they'll make your experience better, too! If you'd like a float base to use as a starting point, please contact Marianne McCann inworld.
How can I share my photos of the event?
Send them to your mySL feed, Snapzilla, or Flickr! We even have flickr and Snapzilla groups!
