The 11th Annual Raglan Shire ArtWalk 2016 is happening now through until 19th June in Second Life and this year there are over 150 SL artists that have participated. There are exhibitions of 2D and 3D featured along hedgerows in the central area of Raglan Shire region. Art work featured can be brought (L$) just by a click of a mouse. There is so much to explore and enjoy this year at the event.
Raglan Shire is hosting its 11th ArtWalk, held May 15 through June 19. This five-week, multi-sim art festival is beautifully displayed among the hedgerows in a newly-designed tree city. It is a must see event for any art enthusiast! In addition to the art, there is live music, dancers, poetry slam, games and much more! A full event calendar is at bit.ly/1TGPJEd.
There is 1 month to go until Second Life’s 13th anniversary begins and the latest news is that press day applications are now open to get early access to the regions. The SL13B community celebration open at 12pm SLT on Sunday 19th June through until Sunday 26th June 2016. This year the theme is The Shared Adventure and it’s going to be great to see the themed builds.
This year SL13B Press Day takes place on Saturday 18th June 2016 and all members of the press are welcome to attend. Press Day is always a great opportunity to take snapshots, videos, tour the regions and find out about the builds.
I’m looking forward to participating in the SL13B community celebrations and celebrating 13 years of Second Life. I have signed up to press day and I’m looking forward to greeting at the welcome areas at SL13B.

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.
