Here are some snapshots I took yesterday afternoon (19th May) from Bay City 11th anniversary celebrations including the parade, the conga line and live music concert. It was such a fun and joyful celebration this year. The attendance was high this year with at least 50 residents taking part and having a great time.
It’s hard to believe Bay City first opened on the grid back in May 2008 and since then Bay City has become one of the most popular communities in Second Life to visit. It’s doubled in size, hosted fantastic annual events, published regular Bay City posts and so much more.
I have enjoyed blogging about Bay City since the second anniversary and all of the other Bay City annual events that have happened over the years. Join the Bay City groups inworld to stay updated on all the latest news and events.
Today there are many great attractions to visit in Bay City including the Harbour Railway, Municipal Airport, Hairy Hippo Fun Land, Hotel Falmouth and the Bay City Center. There is more to discover along route 66 and surrounding areas.
It’s time to get excited because Bay City will be celebrating it’s eleventh anniversary later this month on Sunday 19th May 2019. It’s hard to believe Bay City first opened back in May 2008 and it’s grown so much over the past eleven years in Second Life. The events have been amazing and always fun to participate in every year. If you have not participated in the annual anniversary celebrations before then I highly recommend it.
The annual parade starts at 12pm SLT at the band shell in Bay City – Harwich. The parade will then go down route 66 and will finish at the Bay City Fairgrounds in the North Channel region. There will be a live music concert taking place from 1.30pm SLT in the North Channel region. Everyone is welcome to attend! 🙂
Check out the new 2019 parade route map below.
Here is the full press release with all the details.
