The Second Life estate of St John is hosting Mardi Gras from Sunday, February 7 through Wednesday, February 10. All residents of Second Life are invited to participate in the various events over that 4 day period.
St John is an estate based on New Orleans, Louisiana, USA of 100 years ago. It is currently the year 1916 for the residents of the estate. While St John is an historic community, it is not a role play environment. Role play is allowed and encouraged but it is not a requirement for residency or event attendance. Contemporary attire is allowed.
The St John Mardi Gras kicks off with a performance from The Flapperettes, a vintage dance troupe on Sunday, February 7 at 12:00pm Second Life Time. The Mardi Gras parade starts on Monday evening and runs through Wednesday morning. The parade is an interactive event in which visitors can participate by riding the floats.
On Mardi Gras Day itself there is a 12-hour long music event with live DJs, including Gabrielle Riel and Edward Pearse of Radio Riel, in order to provide live entertainment for Second Life residents in varying time zones. The complete schedule is here: http://stjohnintelligencer.
All of the Mardi Gras events are taking place in the St John sim, which is based on Canal Street in New Orleans.
