If you’re in Bay City this October, you might like to head over to the Bay City Fairgrounds in North Channel, where the city is hosting its fifth annual Hallowe’en Hay Maze, offering residents from across Second Life a little seasonal and light-hearted fun.

2015-posterAs the name suggests, the maze is made up of hay bales, reflecting the time of year, and the route through can bring you into contact with critters, ghosts and more.

The maze has been designed by Marianne McCann, with landscaping by Pygar Bu assisted by Kriss Lehmann of Botanical and the LDPW.Do do have local sounds on when visiting to make sure you enjoy the suitably spooky music provided by a delightful mechanical orchestrion designed by Walton F. Steamwright.

To experience it fully, make sure you set your viewer to at least midnight (or use a suitably dark windlight pre-set), and  then step inside to make your way to the far side, where you’ll find teleport links to two of Bay City’s long-standing haunted locations: the Falmouth Hotel and the Channel Island Asylum.
