Great Fun at SL London Carnival

Great fun was to be had at the SL London Carnival over the weekend. Many hours of preparation had gone into making the event something to remember. The streets in Knightsbridge and Mayfair had been decorated with bunting and balloons along the parade route and there were brightly coloured floats displaying the different businesses in the area. People where invited to wear their best Carnival outfits and there were prizes for the best costumes, as well as prizes for the best floats. Lucy1981 Landar was among the winners, she won a best costume prize of 1000 Lindens and looked great in her dazzling outfit, complete with wings. Debs Regent drove along the route pulling a wonderful float, which had a scaled down model of Big Ben, advertising that SL Big Ben can be hired out as a great venue for parties.

The theme had been carried on into the Underground Club on Saturday, when many avatars enjoyed dancing into the night dressed in their Carnival gear. The actual street parade had taken place on Sunday at 12pm SLT and visitors poured into the area to watch the events. Once the parade had finished there was a free funfair with lots of rides, including dodgems, a ferris wheel and roundabouts for people to go on. The funfair was left in place for a while afterwards for people to enjoy. The Carnival was a complete success and SL London owes a big thank you to sim managers Brie Janick, who looked stunning in a beautiful red outfit, Seany1235 Blinker, who looked very gallant on his horse, Bella LaSalle and all the business people in the area. They all worked so hard with such fantastic results for a brilliant weekend.
