Bastille Day in France. And yesterday when the clock struck midnight in the country, people in the Paris 1900 area in Second Life were celebrating with a party in a sky platform above the sim. People were dressed in red white, and blue, and waving French flags. From the stage, someone was playing accordion music. Not very fluent in French, I couldn't understand the chatter very well. But it was a friendly crowd.
The Paris 1900 region is best known for its Eiffel Tower, which can be found at Paris Eiffel (14, 99, 21). There may be some events today.
