The 1920s Berlin Project 7th Anniversary


On 30th May The 1920s Berlin Project in Second Life will be celebrating their 7th Anniversary with 7 days of fun events until 5th June 2016. There will be festive parties, dance events, a special church service, a car rally and much more. Don’t miss this!

There have been hundred’s of visitors to the sim over the past 7 years and I’m sure there will be more to come in the future. There are many interesting attractions to check out around The 1920s Berlin Project sim including a theatre, nightclub, museum, train station and cinema.

My first visit to The 1920s Berlin Project was back in January 2012 exploring the historical city during my 2012 adventures. I mentioned back then it’s a really nice destination to visit in Second Life and today it still is a great location to visit. I’ve been to previous anniversary events in the historical city and I have enjoyed them very much.

A Look Back At Bay City 8th Anniversary


Bay City Eighth Anniversary_014_012
Route 66 looks great this year

On Sunday 15th May 2016 Bay City celebrated their 8th anniversary in Second Life and this year there was a great attendance (at least 60+ avatars) for the annual celebrations. The 8th parade was great fun this year. The parade started at the band shell stage, then it went along route 66 through the central areas of Bay City until it reached the North Channel region. There were plenty of spectators watching and cheering on this year.

Let’s do the conga dance!

At the end of the parade live music started in the North Channel region throughout the afternoon. Special guests Torley Linden and April Linden attended along with many well-known residents in Second Life including some of my friends. There was a conga dance and it was much longer this year. Overall the 8th anniversary has to be the best one yet in my opinion.
