A Look Back At Bay City 8th Anniversary

Route 66 looks great this year

On Sunday 15th May 2016 Bay City celebrated their 8th anniversary in Second Life and this year there was a great attendance (at least 60+ avatars) for the annual celebrations. The 8th parade was great fun this year. The parade started at the band shell stage, then it went along route 66 through the central areas of Bay City until it reached the North Channel region. There were plenty of spectators watching and cheering on this year.

Let’s do the conga dance!

At the end of the parade live music started in the North Channel region throughout the afternoon. Special guests Torley Linden and April Linden attended along with many well-known residents in Second Life including some of my friends. There was a conga dance and it was much longer this year. Overall the 8th anniversary has to be the best one yet in my opinion.

In previous years I have pretty much enjoyed the annual celebrations and I have enjoyed blogging about Bay City over the past 8 years. It’s hard to believe that the Bay City regions were first opened in Second Life back in May 2008 developed by Linden Lab.

After the opening The Bay City Alliance group was founded to help promote events and share the latest news. Bay City had plots at the annual Second Life birthday celebrations and at the annual BURN2 event. The regular Bay City posts have been most interesting to read announcing the latest breaking news, events, mole watch and much more.

This map below was one of my first snapshots I took of the Bay City Map on 18th January 2009.

My favourite Bay City events have to be the annual anniversary’s, mole day, Halloween events, tree lighting and the prim drop. It’s great fun for everyone and if you have not yet been to either the Bay City regions or any of the events I strongly recommend doing it.🙂

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.

BAY CITY, SL (5 April, 2016) – In May of 2008, the regions of Bay City were opened to Second Life® residents for the first time.

To honor the anniversary, Bay City Residents will be hosting their annual parade and live music event this May.

Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab™ and home to the Bay City Alliance.

It is now the largest Bay city group, and home to most Residents of Bay City.
