Happy Ninth Anniversary Bay City


Happy 9th Anniversary Bay City

On Sunday 21st May marked Bay City ninth anniversary in Second Life. The annual parade and live concert took place where at least 50+ avatars attended.

I can’t wait for the big 10th anniversary next year. I hope it will be the biggest celebration yet and it would be nice to see a new event/something new added.

Bay City will be celebrating it’s ninth anniversary in Second Life on Sunday 21st May 2017 starting with the annual parade at 12.30pm SLT over at the Band Shell located in the Bay City – Harwich region.

The parade will go down Route 66 (highlighted in yellow below) and will finish at Bay City Fairgrounds in the North Channel region where there will a live concert throughout the afternoon on the main stage. This year there will be live performances by DJ Marx Dudek, Christov Kohnke, Winston Ackland and Oblee (Obeloinkment Wrigglesworth).

Last year there was a great attendance (60+ avatars in the region for attendance) with a few Lindens dropping into the Bay City 8th anniversary celebrations. At the end of the celebrations there was a conga dance with a long line of avatars dancing. I absolutely loved it last year from following the parade from the air, the live music and the fun conga dance.

Next year around mid May 2018 will mark the big 10th Bay City anniversary and it’s going to be extra special for sure. I hope there will be a new annual event added to the annual parade and annual live concert that happens every year. 🙂

Members of Linden Department of Public Works to be celebrated

BAY CITY, SL (22nd January, 2017) – Bay City will once again come together to celebrate the hardy Moles of the Linden Department of Public Works on the 4th of February. The event will be held in the Bay City Fairgrounds in North Channel. As in past years, the invitation is open to all Second Life® members to join in the fun.

This will be the 7th such event, set aside to show appreciation for The Moles and their many contributions to Bay City and the rest of the Second Life™ Grid.

Normally held on the same day as Groundhog Day, this year’s event will be observed two days later, taking advantage of the weekend.

The LDPW is a team of Resident builders, scriptwriters, and others to create new content on Linden Lab’s behalf and to the benefit of all. These Residents all have Second Life accounts with the last name “Mole.”

Moles build the infrastructure of Second Life: the public roads and railways, items in our coastal waterways and protected lands, and even larger scale projects like the Linden Homes regions, premium content and experiences, and much more.
