2015 Second Life Christmas Expo!

Christmas Expo - Santa's Sleigh ride

Tada! The Second Life Christmas Expo has flung open its doors and you’re gonna find SO much to do and see and buy. I popped over ahead of the opening to scope the place out, naturally I hopped on Santa’s sleigh and took a ride around. Really a beautiful way to get your bearings and have a little snowy fun. Here’s the Expo’s own word to introduce the event:

“The 2015 Second Life Christmas Expo will consist of both holiday and non holiday items from some of the best creators and designers in Second Life, spread across 8 sims!  The Expo will feature special events, including live performances, djs, skating parties, a Snowman Building Contest, Hunt For the Bells, Naughty Or Nice, a Christmas Tree Lot, holiday raffles and gotchas, and of course photos with Santa!   The Holiday Of Hope Ball, for the 5th year running, will be held at the Christmas Expo. And returning to the Christmas Expo as a special event this year is the  Avi Choice Fashion Awards.”

“The fifth annual Second Life Christmas Expo will be held on December 3 to 14, 2015 and is a mega event that raises funds for Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL). 100% of registration fees, sponsorship fees, kiosk donations, hunt, raffle, auction, and vendor donation items are paid to Relay For Life of Second Life. Relay For Life of Second Life is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and is a virtual version of The Society’s signature real life fundraiser – Relay For Life.”

You can also get your photo taken with the Big Guy himself  here – sweet! Opening hours are – here. I will be posting a few of my favourites over the next couple of days and I was going to poke Zan to go try her luck on the hunt – so expect more news soon !
