In May of 2008, the Linden Department of Public Works unveiled its first project, the themed city area on the Second Life® Mainland known as Bay City.
Now: Come celebrate Bay City’s Eighth Anniversary!
Join us in a parade on Sunday, 15th May, starting from the bandshell in Bay City – Harwich and traveling down Route 66 and Park Place to the Bay City Fairgrounds at North Channel!
Sunday, 15th May at 12:00 p.m. (Noon) SLT
Meet at the bandshell in Bay City – Harwich, with additional room in Bay City – Dennis, Bay City – Tisbury, and Bay City – Edgartown. The parade will begin promptly at 12:30 pm. SLT.
Don’t feel quite like the march? We have several handy parade viewing areas! Here’s SURLs to two of them:
Bay City – Orleans and Bay City – Falconmoon
Parade will conclude in North Channel — but hang around for fun and festivities at the Bay City Fairgrounds, easily accessible by boat, car, walking , or teleport!
Performances will be held at the Bay City Fairgrounds at the end of the parade.

He’s influenced by Elton John, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Joni Mitchell, jazz standards, and many of the greats.

HOW COULD I MAKE A FLOAT?
Best bet is to make ’em as a wearable attachment, not a vehicle. Due to some of the difficulties with ’em last year, we would prefer to avoid vehicles as much as possible. Also, they’ll make your experience better, too!
Get a couple items you can use as a base for your float, as well as more information about ’em for free from the hanging banner outside ~Belle’s Babydolls~!
HOW CAN I SHARE MY PHOTOS?
Send them to your mySL feed, Snapzilla, or Flickr! We even have Flickr and Snapzilla groups!
