Press Relese: Bay City Fifteenth Anniversay



First Mole Project Now Fifteen Years Old


Bay City, the first major project undertaken by the “Moles” of the Linden Department of Public Works, will turn fifteen years old this May. In honor of this achievement, residents of Bay City will host their annual parade through the city, followed by a live music event in the Bay City fairgrounds.

Bay City opened in May of 2008 to initial viewing, with parcels being auctioned throughout the city not long after. In 2011, its land mass doubled, absorbing the copy of Bay City from the former Teen Grid. It has developed the largest community-focused virtual urban area in Second Life.

Parade participants are asked to gather at noon SLT/PDT on Sunday, the 21st 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 music event will kick off at 12:30 p.m. SLT/PDT at the Fairgrounds with DJ DJ GoSpeed of KONA Stream providing music leading into the event until 1:30 p.m.SLT/PDT , followed by Jesie Janick from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, Maximillion Kleene from 2:30-3:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, and AleyKat (Aleylia Resident) from 3:30-4:30 p.m. SLT/PDT.

All Residents of the Second Life grid are encouraged 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 event. Ample viewing areas are provided for all. The music event is also open to all who desire to attend -- not only Residents of Bay City, but the entire grid is welcome.

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.
