IT'S TIME FOR BAY CITY'S SWEET 16

First Mole Project Reaches Another Milestone year

BAY CITY, SL (May 15, 2024) - In May of 2008, the mainland community of Bay City was opened to Second Life® residents across the Grid. Now, Bay City, the first major project undertaken by the “Moles” of the Linden Department of Public Works, will turn sixteen. To honour their anniversary, Bay City Residents will be hosting their annual parade and live music event this May, and welcome everyone to enjoy their fine City.

Bay City is the largest community-focused virtual urban area in Second Life, hosting 24 Residential regions, and an additional 24 or so Linden-owned areas surrounding the City. It has a sizeable number of community-focused Residents in the Bay City Alliance, working to make the City the best place it can be. With this in mind, the City hopes that everyone will feel welcome to join in -- as a participant or a spectator, in our annual parade and live music celebration.

Parade participants are asked to gather at noon SLT/PDT on Sunday, the 19th of May, to line-up at the band shell in Bay City - Harwich. The parade will wend its way down Route 66 beginning at 12:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, and will conclude at the Bay City Fairgrounds in the North Channel region. We encourage people to bring their own wearable float, to march, and to show off their part of Second Life with the rest of the revelers.

A music event will kick off at 12:30 p.m. SLT/PDT at the Fairgrounds with DJ GoSpeed of KONA Stream providing music leading into the event until 1:30 p.m.SLT/PDT , followed by AleyKat (Aleylia Resident) from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, Mavenn from 2:30-3:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, and Sarita Twisted from 3:30-4:30 p.m. SLT/PDT.

Celebration goods, including parade float bases and ideas, are available at the Bay City Community Center, in the Daley Bay region for those who wish to be a part of the event. Ample viewing areas are provided for all. The music event is also open to all who desire to attend -- not only Residents of Bay City, but the entire grid is welcome.

Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab® and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life® and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest Bay City group, and home to most Residents of Bay City.

Annual “MOLE Day” Celebration Coming February 4

Bay City Residents hold annual celebration of Linden Department of Public Works

BAY CITY, SL (21st January, 2024) - Bay City will once again hold its annual “Mole Day” event to salute the The Linden Department of Public Works' Moles and their many contributions to Bay City and the rest of the Second Life® Grid.

Traditionally, the Mole Day event is held on or around Groundhog Day: for 2024, it will be held on Sunday, the 4th of February, beginning at 11:00 a.m. SLT. This year’s event will feature DJ GoSpeed of KONA stream followed by a live performance by Evee Blackstar (user name Harleen Jester) at 12:00 p.m. SLT.

The event will be held in the Bay City Fairgrounds in the North Channel region in Bay City. As in past years, Residents of all Second Life communities are encouraged to attend to share their appreciation of the LDPW’s many Moles. Of course, Moles and Lindens are also welcome to join in the festivities.

"Moles" are members of The Linden Department of Public Works (LDPW). The LDPW is a team of Resident builders, scriptwriters, and others to create new content on Linden Lab's behalf and to the benefit of all. These Residents contractors all have Second Life accounts with the last name “Mole.”.

Moles build the infrastructure of Second Life: the public roads and railways, items in our coastal waterways and protected lands, and even larger scale projects like the Linden Homes regions, premium content and experiences, and much more.

Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab® and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest group for Residents of Bay City.
