Hippiestock

 
By Gemma Cleanslate
 

I finally was able to find time to visit Hippiestock.It was live music day which was great! This a terrific event that has been in SL since 2011. It came out of the vision of Hippie Bowman and friends and is here in January every year since. Take a walk up to the barn on the west side of the region and read the History there. There is a road sign with direction.


This year the region was built by CK (Ceakay Ballyhoo). She said “This year's Hippiestock has been shaped by me as I have tried to recreate the Woodstock Festival area of 1969 in watercolour textures. Lots to see and find, including sim related items for sale or for free!

The sim is only around for the month of January.

Find out about the events here: https://calendar.google.com/calendar/embed?src=81f52f2267f7570b8ae8bf69791f297d2e6042cc5f7009e6840bf467c3dbb6a4@group.calendar.google.com&ctz=America/Los_Angeles


I arrived at the site while Hippie was strumming and singing songs from that original Woodstock and artists of the era. The d├ęcor is so reminiscent of the original farm. There are lots of places to just hang out and chat when there are no events taking place .


CK has also created a cute “tour” book from the eyes of the Elle who meets Hippiefrog and goes off to help him search a lost smile somewhere in the region.that you will find on the land next to teller of the story. Take some time to read it, It is so sweet and cute! It is also for sale on the hill at the barn.

You will land right next to her . Take a look at the picture of the original farm and the recreation that is posted at the landing point also. Visit while you have time. Check the goggle page for events. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Terrapin/31/247/22


I have to tell you that the Bellisseria continent 5th anniversary is coming ! It will be a fun event held beginning on April 24 with a whole week of events. So much has happened as this continent grew exponentially over those years. It is still growing! That is a shot of the continent map taken from my home recently. All are invited, not only residents, to celebrate. Initial information is found here. Put it on your calendar!
 
*Correction: earlier we slipped and put the wrong date for the anniversary. It's been corrected*
