Bay City will be celebrating it’s ninth anniversary in Second Life on Sunday 21st May 2017 starting with the annual parade at 12.30pm SLT over at the Band Shell located in the Bay City – Harwich region.
The parade will go down Route 66 (highlighted in yellow below) and will finish at Bay City Fairgrounds in the North Channel region where there will a live concert throughout the afternoon on the main stage. This year there will be live performances by DJ Marx Dudek, Christov Kohnke, Winston Ackland and Oblee (Obeloinkment Wrigglesworth).
Last year there was a great attendance (60+ avatars in the region for attendance) with a few Lindens dropping into the Bay City 8th anniversary celebrations. At the end of the celebrations there was a conga dance with a long line of avatars dancing. I absolutely loved it last year from following the parade from the air, the live music and the fun conga dance.
Next year around mid May 2018 will mark the big 10th Bay City anniversary and it’s going to be extra special for sure. I hope there will be a new annual event added to the annual parade and annual live concert that happens every year. 🙂

Mainland community turns nine this May
BAY CITY, SL (9 May, 2017) – As the Second Life® mainland community of Bay City turns nine, its Residents are once again hosting their annual parade through the city, followed by a live music event in their fairgrounds.
The first project of the Linden Department of Public Works, Bay City opened in May of 2008 to initial viewing, with auctions for land in the city beginning soon after. It has developed into the largest community-focused virtual urban area in Second Life.
Participants in the annual parade are asked to gather at noon SLT/PDT on Sunday, the 21st of May, to lineup 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.
A live concert will kick off at 1:30 p.m. SLT/PDT at the Fairgrounds with DJ Marx Dudek providing music leading into the event until 1:30 p.m.SLT/PDT , followed by Christov Kohnke from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, Winston Ackland from 2:30-3:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, and Oblee (Obeloinkment Wrigglesworth) from 3:30-4:30 p.m. SLT/PDT.

Ample viewing areas are provided. The music event is also open to all who desire to attend — not only Residents of Bay City
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.
