Bay City’s 7th Anniversary

Bay City 7th Anniversary CelebrationFrom a note card sent to me by Marianne McCann:

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.

Now: come celebrate Bay City’s Seventh Anniversary!

Join us in a parade on Sunday, 17th May, starting from the bandshell in Bay City – Harwich and traveling down Route 66 and Park Place to the Bay City Fairgrounds at North Channel!

Parade staging
Sunday, May 17th at 12:00 p.m. (Noon) SLT
Meet at the bandshell in Bay City – Harwich (SLurl), 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: Bay City – Orleans (SLurl) and Bay City – Falconmoon (SLurl).

Parade end:
Parade will conclude in North Channel (SLurl) — but hang around for fun and festivities at the Bay City Fairgrounds! Live music will be starting at 1:30 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! [Editor’s Note: Contact Uccello Poultry for float builder info.]

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!
