Press Release: Bay City Eleventh Anniversary

It’s time to get excited because Bay City will be celebrating it’s eleventh anniversary later this month on Sunday 19th May 2019. It’s hard to believe Bay City first opened back in May 2008 and it’s grown so much over the past eleven years in Second Life. The events have been amazing and always fun to participate in every year. If you have not participated in the annual anniversary celebrations before then I highly recommend it.

The annual parade starts at 12pm SLT at the band shell in Bay City – Harwich. The parade will then go down route 66 and will finish at the Bay City Fairgrounds in the North Channel region. There will be a live music concert taking place from 1.30pm SLT in the North Channel region. Everyone is welcome to attend! 🙂

    Oh wow, has yet another year passed already? They will again have a parade in Bay City, probably followed by a huge ball … and we are all invited!
