Bay City's 8th Anniversary Celebration

Each year in May, the residents of Bay City celebrate their anniversary. To give you more information about this year's celebration, please welcome guest reporter Marianne McCann!

In May of 2008, the regions of Bay City were opened to Second Life® residents for the first time. Over the last eight years, the area has grown into one of the most vibrant of mainland communities, boasting a long-time community focus. To honor the anniversary, Bay City Residents will be hosting their annual parade and live music event this May.

Please join us for a parade on Sunday, 15th May, starting from the bandshell in Bay City - Harwich and traveling down Route 66 and Park Place to the Bay City Fairgrounds at North Channel! A live concert will follow the parade, kicking off at 12:30 p.m. SLT at the Fairgrounds with GoSpeed Racer of KONA Stream providing music leading into the event, followed by musicians Zachh Cale, Maximillion Kleen, and Noma Falta.

All Residents of the Second Life grid are welcomed to participate in the parade and the music event — not only Residents of Bay City. Participants in the annual parade are asked to gather at noon SLT on Sunday, the 15th of May, to lineup at the band shell in Bay City - Harwich. We are looking for festive outfits, unique avatars, costumes, floats, Macy's parade-style balloons, marching bands, stilt walkers, dancers, kids on bikes, dancers, drill teams — you name it! Come and represent your own special part of Second Life! For those who don't wish to be a part of the parade, but would rather watch, ample viewing areas are provided, including one in Falconmoon and one in Orleans.

Want to participate but need ideas on how to make a float? Your best bet is to make 'em as a wearable attachment, not a vehicle. Due to some of the difficulties with 'em last year, we would prefer to avoid vehicles as much as possible. Also, they'll make your experience better, too! 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. Then, please share your photos of the event to your mySL feed, Snapzilla, or Flickr! We even have Flickr and Snapzilla groups! Come on down and join the fun on the 15th, and help Bay City celebrate!
