Decades Festival

But if you are looking for something more, check out The Decades Festival and Ball is set for June 27, 2015 starting at 12:01 AM SLT and runs for 24 hours.   I'm just going to post their press release info. as they say it best.

"June 27, The Decades Festival Site on Vahalla Island in SL will be host to nine HUGE history exhibits and 15 live and/or interactive events, which run the gamut from Renaissance music to coffee house RP.  There will be balloon rides and pony rides, even a zip line.  There is a historical ship to explore and a space museum that will knock your socks off.  You won't believe the attention to historical detail and accuracy in all of the exhibits, no matter what their subject, from hats to fine art to tarot to houses.  Donations made through the many donation signs scattered across the island go to support historical RP and education in SL through The Historical Communities and Royal Courts website,  The primary organizers of the Decades Festival are Freda Frostbite and Sister (SisterButta).

  1. Thank you for this wonderful posting! The sim will remain for a time and then there will be a permanent (as much as pixels can be permanent) site as an information site, portal, and exhibit center. More live music and cultural events this coming weekend, with details to follow.
