There are couple of places worth visiting this weekend …
Firstly, the Isle of Wyrms Fall Festival 2011: Celebrating the Steam Dragon is now reaching its climax. If you have never visited the home of some of the most stunning dragons in Second Life, now is definitely the time to do it!
The Festivals are held four times a year,and raise money for St Tiggwinkles Wildlife Hospital in the UK (world-renowned for its care of hedgehogs – the cute little creatures popular with Darryth Kennedy, creator of the Isle of Wyrms dragons – and with many Isle of Wyrm inhabitants too), This Festival is unusual in combining elements of dragon lore and steampunk, with displays being mounted on top of giant cogs. There’s plenty to see and do and, of course, buy – including some of the most stunning steampunk airships that I’ve seen in Second Life.
To give donation look for white St Tiggys jars or Green Flame pots for events fund. All donations will go to St Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital.
The Festival began on Thursday, but will be continuing right through the weekend with a wealth of events:

Also this weekend, the Garden of Dreams (home to the fabulous Dream Scenes which we visited in an episode of Designing Worlds) will be celebrating its third birthday. The owners, Kayle Matzerath & Kristina Simon, will be celebrating with a party at 1pm SLT on Saturday 27th August on the stage at Garden of Dreams 2.
3 years is a looong time for such a project like Garden of Dreams. We started it with shivers of fear if it would be sucessful. If people would love our idea of a romantic garden. If they support it with buying our stuff so we can hold the sims. And yes :)) Now we know you do love it!”
Today we want to celebrate it with a big party on our stage at Garden of dreams 2, starting with a very cool live musician at 1pm Gtm: Torben Asp will rock our Sim with his cool electro music and the fitting light show. Its definitely a must see but maybe you would love to join our party a bit later on. At 3pm we catch the stream and DJ Kristina Simon is going to party with our guests. And we raffle away cool items from our shop meanwhile!
Talking about celebration and cool items: To commemorate the anniversary we released a new dream scene and its 50% off this week! You buy 5 scenes for the price of one with “The Fest”. Its a cool place for any party occasion! Rezzdays, Birthday, Weddings and receptions, a stage for acting or singing : If you buy “The Fest” you have it them all available anytime in your pockets! You can add the scenes to your existing dreamscene-bubble and of course you get them copy and mod to rebuild them for your purposes.
If this sounds good you might love our other Anniversary sale offer:
Our complete set of dreamscenes is reduced! 50 % off for the next week. 31 dreamscenes for half the price. If you ever thought about buying it: Do it now!
And at least we have a nice freebie in our shop. Right at the entrance of our shop you’ll find some cute party balloons for free
Kayle, of course, won the award for Best Designer Sim at this year’s Relay for Life, and elements of this have been incorporated into the main Garden of Dreams site now – uf you go to the party or to pick up some of the speciual offers, it’s definitely worth exploring further!
