It’s that time of year again – paradin’ time! First is Nova Albion’s celebrations for its founding in March 2004 and this year the event was planned by the always energetic LisaHot Juran (who also arranged a stage & 3 hours of live music after the event!).
Osprey wanted to recreate the history 1887 Attack of the Ducks and so lots of us dressed as ducks and took to the streets with budgies, orcs, sword-maidens, Babbage urchins, Bay City kids to name but a few!
By the time we reached the end, we could see Salazar had nearly rebuilt the famous arch laid low by a grid quake last year…
Before the music kicked in (and I crashed out for an hour – bloody SL!) we had the street naming ceremony where the road outside Pituca Fairchang’s park & windmill was named after her late SL & RL partner, Garth. His passing is still felt by many residents and for me it was lovely to meet Pituca for the first time.
Next is the Bay City Parade and then maybe I can persuade the Steelhead Town Council to hold one, eh? 😉
p.s. Mark your diaries now – March 2011 for the 7th Nova Albion Anniversary Parade – come along and join in the fun!
