Marianne McCann is a resident of Bay
City. She also organize and run the Bay City Alliance, a group for
other Bay City residents to meet and work together to the betterment of
the community. Marianne also had the great, good fortune of being able
to help manage and present events for Bay City for several years now.
As long as the folks feel that Marianne is doing a good job, as long as
she physically can, and as long as Second Life and Bay City exists, she
will continue doing that.
Marianne hopes that Bay City
has many more years to come. “It's a great community with some great
people in it. I hope we'll see more good folks become its citizens, and
we'll continue to have fun long into the future..” said Marianne.
Marianne would say that Bay City is a very
special place because it's a great blend of people and places, all
seemingly working in concert. It makes Marianne happy to see.
City will have large events just about monthly. Most are concerts, or
at least have a musical components. They can take many forms. For an
example, February “Mole day” event honors the LPWD, and their work
helping to build Bay City. In the holidays, they have a “Tree Lighting”
event that includes charitable giving and live music, etc. They also
have two weekly events. Their meetings happen every Tuesday, while a
weekly “rumble” race happens Thursday nights. Toward the end of
September, they usually have their Oktoberfest. Oktoberfest is a
Germanic tradition. All big beer-focused, harvest-time event.
Oktoberfest is usually a couple hours long, with Djed music and much
celebrating. Details are, as yet, pending.
would recommend Bay City to newcomers who come to Second Life for the
first time. “It's a great place to sightsee and explore, with a lot of
mole and resident made content with visiting.” said Marianne. “It's a
good place and a great community.”
first "Hot Bay City Nights" was in 2012. The name is a take-off on
"Hot August Nights", an annual vintage/custom car show in Reno, Nevada.
As long as the folks are interested and Linden Lab keeps the lights on, then Marianne suspects that they will keep doing it.
"Hot Bay City Nights" ran from August 19 to
27, 2017. Miss Bay City was held during the event on the 27th. The car
wash was held on the 23rd, if Marianne's memory serves.
Sounds like I have missed out on the fun but there is always next year and I'm already looking forward to the next event!
