National Day in SL: Report

By all accounts, the National Day weekend on Second House of Sweden was a success (and we think so too :-). On Friday night, the sim on which the festivities took place was oversubscribed for over two hours, resulting in people being turned away in order to ensure that the event went smoothly for those who made it (our apologies). Here are some snapshots from the evening:

Many thanks for making this happen to Tina Dahl, and to Ika Cioc and Belze Fraker for the preparations and running of the show, and to the many artists and participants who made a contribution, ensuring that this was by far the best National Day celebration in Second Life, ever:-)
