And then there’s gardens.

There’s also the Breedables Market (and yes, you can shop here too).

There are Talks. And Classes. And Shopping. And entertainment from great Second Life musicians and djs.

There’s a Hunt. There’s the Decorating Competition – enter yourselves or feel inspired by what you see!

And when you’ve been inspired, you can of course … go Shopping!

There’s the daily Lantern Release (at 4pm SLT) – a quiet time to reflect and remember what this event is all about – raising fund for Relay for Life of Second Life – and supporting survivors and caregivers.

There’s a monorail to ride so that you can travel easily between regions. And Shop.
