At the Getsuei Okiya in Antiquity Cove, I had the opportunity to see the lovely geishas entertaining the audience, with Miss Koyomi playing the Koto, and Miss Mimiru (Lavender), Miss Usher (red), and Miss Ratza (black), a soothing respite from the hustle and bustle of the Township.
Six artists were generous enough to display their works in the central island at Antiquity Cove. (I shall add further details on their displays in part II of the Grand Opening celebrations)
The northern border of the Cove, just south of Doolittle Park, visitors were able to engage in a great number of games, from board games to a dunking machine… and if hungry, indulge in refreshment from the local vending cart (soda and “hot dogs”)!
Miss Virriginia Tombola coordinated this event, with substantial help from Miss Artesia Beaumont. Both of these ladies expended significant effort in locating, assisting the riders with their steeds, explaining the route, and addressing certain emergent technical issues to ensure the steeple race took place.
Miss Paisly Beebe filled the Antiquity music park, entertaining all present with her smoothly melodic voice singing the classics eloquently.
Ball / Dinner
Event tents were set up just outside the Grand Ballroom, providing fine dining for guest and residents alike, professionally catered by The Arbor.
After the ball, guests and residents were directed to the southeast corner of the township, where a fireworks show was put on display for all present. An impressive event (my first in SL), it was a cavalcade of color and explosions to close a thoroughly enjoyable and successful Grand Opening to the Antiquity Township and Cove sims.
