4pm SLT: Lantern Release Ceremony
Every day at 4pm, there will be a special lantern release ceremony from the roof of the Main Theatre at the Expo.
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.

The results for the Home and Garden Expo Decorating Contest are in and we are proud to announce the finalists!

They will now be building until the end of Thursday 28th March. After that, voting will begin!

We had a huge response to the contest, and a lot of entries – sadly, with only 16 houses to decorate this year, we had to make a selection.

The final group were chosen by a raffle draw made earlier today by Robert Galland, Jasmin Viqueen Morningstar, Cain Maven and Saffia Widdershins, who in turn drew the names for the individual houses to decorate out of the equivalent of a Second Life hat (a random name generator script).

We are sorry to say that that all those who entered haven’t made the finals but we will be setting up a new contest next year, when we hope you’ll feel encouraged to enter again!
