Press Release: Bay City Thirteenth Anniversary
BAY CITY REACHES ITS TEEN YEARS
Mainland community turns thirteen this May
BAY CITY, SL (6 May, 2021) - It was thirteen years ago that the first project of the Linden Department of Public Works was opened on Second Life®. To celebrate, Bay City's Residents are once again hosting their annual parade down the city's Route 66, followed by a live music event in the Bay City Fairgrounds.
Bay City opened in May of 2008 to initial viewing, with auctions for land in the city beginning soon after. It has developed into the largest community-focused virtual urban area in Second Life.
Participants in the annual parade are asked to gather at noon SLT/PDT on Sunday, the 16th of May, to lineup at the band shell in Bay City - Harwich. The parade will wend its way down Route 66 beginning at 12:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, and will conclude at the Bay City Fairgrounds in the North Channel region.
A live concert will kick off at 1:30 p.m. SLT/PDT at the Fairgrounds with DJ GoSpeed Rasere of KONA Stream providing music leading into the event until 1:30 p.m.SLT/PDT , followed by Mimi Carpenter from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, Parker Static from 2:30-3:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, and Noma Falta from 3:30-4:30 p.m. SLT/PDT.
All Residents of the Second Life grid are welcomed to participate. 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. Ample viewing areas are provided. The music event is also open to all who desire to attend -- not only Residents of Bay City
Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab™ and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life® and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest Bay city group, and home to most Residents of Bay City.
