Home and Garden Expo Decorating Competition

There is still the time to vote in the Home and Garden Decorating Contest!

We have now raised over $240,000 – and have extended the voting time by 12 extra hours (till noon on Saturday 6th April) in the hope that we can raise the total to L$250,000.

RFL kiosks have been placed outside each home. Every Linden you pay into the kiosks counts as a vote – you can vote as much and as often as you like, and you can vote for as many houses as you want!

So come over and view these beautifully decorated homes!

Sometimes people speak, but often the event takes place in comparative silence – a break from the busyness (and the business) of the Expo – a time to reflect, remember and mourn. Set your windlight to midnight and join us – or watch from afar.

Entertainment at The Home Expo Theatre on this last weekend of the event is full of great music provided by some of Second Life’s TOP performers.

2pm: Satin & Erin
Satin Galli and Erin68 Frog are two of SL’s best live vocalists! Being a real life couple, they perform a mix of duets and solos of favorite cover songs. Their spirited banter and laughter, interaction with the crowds, and top vocals make for a fantastic hour of entertainment!

3pm: Wolfie Starfire
Wolfie Starfire, also known as Meg Groves, took interest in theatre at a young age, and aspired to be successful in the worlds of both music and film. She took many singing, acting and dance classes, and dabbled in the film and commercial industries. Meg is currently pursuing a BFA in Acting at Coastal Carolina University.

5pm: Keeba Tammas
Keeba Tammas is one of the finest female vocalists in Second Life. A professional vocalist for many years, Keeba was in a variety of bands in the eighties. She also did voice overs for cartoons and commercials. A seasoned performer in SL as well, Keeba is a very sought after female vocalist here in our virtual world. From the first song to the last she delivers a power packed punch … belting out her songs with tremendous energy and shear raw talent.

6pm: Djembe Dragonfire
Djembe Dragonfire’s background includes many years of professional musical experiences including conducting, teaching, and performing, he has sung in a major opera chorus, sung solos in many churches, and even sang back up vocals on a CD produced for a contemporary vocal artist. Djembe has taught instrumental and voice private lessons and also in music programs in public schools. His voice is amazing and if you haven’t been to one of his shows, you especially need to head over the The Expo today!
