A Christmas wonderland, spanning five SL regions, will set the scene for guests and shoppers, vendors and entertainers.  SL residents will be able to find Christmas gifts, find free ‘Naughty or Nice’ giveaway gifts being given out by every vendor, or visit Santa and have pictures taken.

Residents can attend one of the many events:

  • The Avi Choice Awards – The Avi Choice Awards ~ the annual awards presentation recognizing the people and talent behind SL’s amazing creations, completely chosen and voted on by SL residents.
  • Race for the Bells!  An ALL NEW Xmas Expo Contest!!

Starting at the Xmas Expo, racers must find hidden Silver Bells in 25 locations across the grid!
This is a TIMED RACE. Once the 100L entry fee has been paid, the
time has started! A leaderboard at the Xmas Expo Sim will display the names of those with the fastest times.  The race will run throughout the ENTIRE TWO WEEKS of the Expo, with 10,000L on the line for first place!

  • Breedables One-Of-A-Kind Auction – One of a kind breedables, generously donated by participating breedable companies, will be auctioned off by The Breeders’ Borough’s own Cortez Brandriss on December 15th!
  • Auction/Raffle – Many amazing items will be available for auction and raffle from some of SL’s best creators. 100% of the proceeds from the Expo’s auctions and raffles will go to Relay For Life of Second Life.
  • Shopping – In addition to enjoying the many events, activities and features of the Christmas Expo, visitors can get a head start on their Christmas shopping at the more than 70 shops.
  • Live Music/DJ – Entertainment will feature many of SL’s top performers, singers, djs, and hosts throughtout the Expo. See the ‘entertainment schedule’ part of the website for dates and times.

Christmas Expo 2012’s design is generously provided by Harlequin Fhang. Harley’s talent, long appreciated by and featured prominently at the Breeders’ Borough, has also earned her resounding praise for the unique, spooky build at the 2012 Fright Night Expo.  We are grateful now as she brings that original, creative style to Christmas Expo. Harley’s holiday builds will provide phenomenal photo ops for those memory-making photos!
