Bay City in Second Life will be celebrating their eighth anniversary on Sunday 15th May 2016 with the annual parade starting at 12.30pm SLT with a live concert during the afternoon starting from 1.30pm SLT until 4.30pm SLT.

Bay City was founded in 2008 and since then it’s one of the best mainland communities to visit in Second Life today. Last year there was a really good attendance and it was good fun all round. I have enjoyed the annual parades in recent years and this year is going to be excellent.
