Bay City 10th Anniversary Celebrations Recap – Parade, Concert, History & Maps


10th Annual Live Music Concert

Bay City in Second Life hosted its 10th anniversary celebrations on Sunday 20th May 2018 with the annual parade and live concert. There was a really good attendance (over 40+ avs) for this year’s anniversary events throughout the afternoon. It was great to see some familiar faces this year attending.

The parade was excellent this year with many participating in groups.  The lag was down this year with no major reports of region crashes during the parade going down Route 66. Many Moles stopped by during the live concert and joined the long conga line. The live performers did a great job this year. The music was awesome! 🙂  

I would say this was one of my the top favourite Bay City celebrations yet.

Bay City 10th Anniversary Press Release


First Mole Project Hits the Decade Mark.

BAY CITY, SL (6 March, 2018) – 

Bay City, the first project undertaken by the Moles of the Linden Department of Public Works, turns ten years old this May, and in honor of this achievement, residents of Bay City will once again host an annual parade through the city, followed by a live music event in the Bay City fairgrounds.

Bay City opened in May of 2008 to initial viewing, with parcels being auctions throughout the city soon after. In 2011, it’s land mass doubled, as it absorbed the copy of Bay City that existed on the former Teen Grid. It has developed into the largest community-focused virtual urban area in Second Life.

Parade participants 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 GoSpeed Rasere of KONA Stream providing music leading into the event until 1:30 p.m.SLT/PDT , followed by Parker Static from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, Erika Ordinary from 2:30-3:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, and Stratus Mactavish from 3:30-4:30 p.m. SLT/PDT.

All Residents of the Second Life grid are welcomed to participate. 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 parade. 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.

Happy Ninth Anniversary Bay City


Happy 9th Anniversary Bay City

On Sunday 21st May marked Bay City ninth anniversary in Second Life. The annual parade and live concert took place where at least 50+ avatars attended.

I can’t wait for the big 10th anniversary next year. I hope it will be the biggest celebration yet and it would be nice to see a new event/something new added.
