BAY CITY ANNOUNCES ANNUAL ANNIVERSARY FÊTE

Second Life® city marks twelve years

BAY CITY, SL (6 March, 2020) –

Bay City, the first major project undertaken by the “Moles” of the Linden Department of Public Works, announces it’s twelfth anniversary celebration, with their now traditional parade down “Route 66,” followed by a live music event in the Bay City fairgrounds.

Opening in May of 2008 to initial viewing, with parcels being auctions throughout the city soon after, Bay City has shown itself to be one of the highlights of Second Life: a blending of Linden infrastructure and a strong, friendly community of involved residents who, together, give the area its unique charm.

Parade participants are asked to gather at noon SLT/PDT on Sunday, the 17th of May, to lineup at the band shell in Bay City – Harwich. The parade will wend its way down Route 66 beginning at 12:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, and will conclude at the Bay City Fairgrounds in the North Channel region.

A live concert will kick off at 1:30 p.m. SLT/PDT at the Fairgrounds with DJ GoSpeed of KONA Stream providing music leading into the event until 1:30 p.m.SLT/PDT , followed by Parker Static from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, Quartz from 2:30-3:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, and Wolfie Starfire from 3:30-4:30 p.m. SLT/PDT.

All Residents of the Second Life grid are welcomed to participate. Celebration goods, including parade float bases and ideas, are available at the Bay City Community Center, in the Daley Bay region for those who wish to be a part of the parade. Ample viewing areas are provided. The music event is also open to all who desire to attend — not just Residents of Bay City

Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab™ and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life® and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest Bay city group, and home to most Residents of Bay City.

Scenes from Bay City 11th Anniversary Celebrations in Second Life


Bay City celebrates 11 years in Second Life 

Bay City 11th Anniversary

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.
