Secondfest (Jun 29th - Jul 1st)


Okay, I am excited!! When you take a powerhouse like Intel as a sponsor and combine 9 SIMS into one big island of entertainment all geared up for a 3 day music and arts festival = huge potential for a fun time. From the looks on the website the sponsors of the event are trying to recreate a 3 day festival just like the many RL festivals this summer. There will be places to camp, food vendors, ,portable johns, and even be a mud fight scheduled for the last day of the event. Pet Shop Boys will be headlining the event (which ironically Jelly and I were just discussing earlier today and which bring back quite a few memories from high school.)
The official posting reads:
