From Friday through Sunday, Caledon is holding a RFL event entitled, "The Rather UnFairground - Villains' Carnival." Caledon doesn't have nearly enough villainy, so this should fill a sizable need in the community. From the notecard:
The Rather UnFairgrounda slightly villainous RFL charity eventOpening april 1st to 3rd explosive endingin caledon eyrea dark carnival and your opportunity to enjoy builds and rides and purchase villain supply by some of second life's most wicked creators, e.g.:martini discovolantemr vanmoermadcow cosmosnix sandskhan omizunighty goodspeedBobE Schismtrashmen haxcutea benelliand more.Also planned:Friday:1-3 pm sltDance on the devil's dastardly desk!Shindig with Martin Ren, formerly of Flashman's,2pm slt -- During the event--RFL ransom auction ~ Who is it you will you help save?????Saturday:Second Day of the UNfairgroundbuy wonderous things, from amazing makers!ride! wonder! run!!!!!!Sunday12:30 pm sltDance & Auction on the devil's dastardly desk!Martin Ren, formerly of Flashman's as your host and Auctioneer.- bid & win auction items from some of the World's Vilest's Villians- mustache contest (for ladies and gentlemen)- evil poetry contest (bring yours!)High above Darkest KittiwickshireThe UNfairground will be open all day, unless....Sunday afternoon: an accidental fire might occur at the well-insured UNfairground, Bringing the festivities to a sudden, but impressive close.
I note in passing that social events in Caledon have an alarming propensity to end in calamity.
I have already mentioned the Clockwork Ball in Steeltopia on April 2 (2-4 pm and then again 7-9 pm SLT).
And not as steamy, but potentially of interest, is the 2011 Fantasy Faire - also a RFL event, for those interested - running from April 2 to 10. Several Steamlanders are participating, including Miss Kembri Tomsen, the Curious Seamstress (exhibiting here) and Lassitude & Ennui.
Alas, urgent business will take me far from the Steamlands this weekend, but I wish each of the organizers a most successful event.
As I wrote this, I received word that the Volares will be opening a new sim shortly, near Caledon, and just a tad darker than our genteel community may be used to. As in, potentially fatally darker. I am quite looking forward to that.
