SL12B fireworks show marks the end for live performances


SL12B performances end

SL12B performances end with huge firework show

To mark the end of the live performances at SL12B Community Celebration Bewell Ormega put on a huge fireworks show between 11:30pm SLT (28th) to 12am SLT (29th) at the SL12B Stunning Cake Stage. It was really amazing to attend the final event of SL12B and I have to say I have loved this year’s birthday celebrations from start to end.

Thanks to all the organisers for the best party yet. :)

The Linden talks I thought worked really well along with the SL12B music festival. I enjoyed exploring with the SL12B raptor avatar and sharing adventures on my SL Flickr stream. The theme What Dreams May Come I liked and the builds were much better this year. The stages and live music was fantastic. The SL12B BIG Hunt continues until 4th July 2015.

The SL12B regions will remain open for viewing until Saturday 4th July 2015. This is a great time to visit the exhibits and explore before the sims go offline for another year.

I hope that you have enjoyed by special SL12B blog coverage this week and all my SL12B snapshots can be found on my SL Flickr stream. I’m looking forward to SL13B and I’m sure it will be another awesome one.

Please share in comments your thoughts on SL12B! Thanks :)

It’s Second Life’s official 12th birthday today


Back on June 23rd 2003 Second Life was launched officially by Linden Lab and today Second Life reaches its 12th birthday. It’s incredible to think how far Second Life has come since then and how much has changed in 12 years. Happy 12th Birthday, Second Life! :)
