Welcome to the 4th Annual New Babbage Oiling Festival! We hope you will have time to visit and build!
The Oiling Festival is a steampunk answer to spring cleaning, when we halt the factories to clean out the grit and grime of the previous year and perform our annual maintenance. All good citizens and visiting steamlanders are encouraged to roll up their sleeves, show their national pride, and participate! The original Oiling Festival was held in 2009 to add needed items to the city inventory and invite the greater steamlands to experience the Babbage way of life for a week. The drawbridges in Wheatstone Waterways, the city tartans, naval jack, the Sea Gate, and the palettes of bricks that appear at every build site and the crates of goods on the piers are all artifacts of previous Oiling Festivals.
Festival Opens at noon, Friday, March 9th. Building stops Saturday evening, March 24th, so we all have time to clean up for the Steamfitter’s Industrial Gold Themed Ball at Piermont Landing.
Judging and walk around to admire the results will take place on Sunday, March 25th.
Tomahna Hall has been rezzed across from the Radio Riel tower in New Babbage sim.
