LOCATION: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Crestwood%20Acres/135/129/21


ART in HATS and HATS in ART is back for another year of fun, whimsy, artistic expression and entertainment! There are contests open to the public with prizes, a variety of entertainment, more art and, of course, the most exciting display of hats in Second Life collectively in one spot!
