Day 3: My BURN2 Fire Moon Event 2017 Snapshots

Today is the last full day of the BURN2 Fire Moon event happening now in Second Life. The live music entertainment continues until midnight tonight. Congratulations to all the event organisers, builders, volunteers, DJs and everyone else who has made this event successful.

Personally I have been impressed by the amazing builds this year for the fire moon event and I think the theme has worked very well. The live music has been really good over the last few days with plenty of attendees.

See some of my day 3 snapshots below
