Boat & Bikini Expo Part 2: Chaos at the French Rivera!

Official Boats & Bikinis Expo Sign

DAY 2:  The French Riviera features huge water displays and 20+ of your favorite fashion and home furnishing stores at The Boats & Bikini Expo.  A cruise shipped docked in the French Riviera and a horrible mix up just happened! The passengers’ luggage was confused with deliveries to local stores, and now there are suitcases all over town! To participate in the “Boats & Bikini Suitcase Hunt,” collect missing luggage before the ship leaves port on July 31, 2013.  Get rewarded for your efforts!

Boats & Bikini Suitcase Hunt:

INSTRUCTIONS: Visit the Hanalei Tourism Office on the Expo sim to start the hunt! Follow the clues and search for suitcases inside each store! You MUST complete this hunt by following each clue in order–skipping ahead is not allowed! Use the teleport boards placed around the sim to easily find each location!

Set sail to the Boats & Bikini Expo….

Join us at 3pm SLT today, July 25, 2013 as we christen the launch of the Boats & Bikini Expo sponsored by Oceania Breedables.  I’m very excited about this week-long event because the setting is the posh French Rivera.  There are tons of top SL creators including the best boat/yacht builders, fashion designers and home decor stores: Chez Moi, beach street, Luas Store, Dead Dollz, Aphrodite Shop and Southern Seas Ships.  From July 25-31st there will be a “Treasure Hunt” with prizes at each store.  I’m an official blogger for this event and I will give you sneak peek this week of free hunt items and other “finds.”  So grab your flips flops, shades, sunscreen and bikinis as we sail off to the Boats & Bikini Expo!

Hi, I’m Gloria, your guide to Boats & Bikinis!

As a California girl from the USA, I was so happy to find Inspired Designs.  They had all my beach party needs, including a fab red Weber BBQ complete with burning coals and food, to a colorful beach set with beach umbrella, towels, cooler, picnic basket, french bread and champagne.  The beach towel set includes animations for couples and singles, and a color change option from red to blue.  When visiting Inspired Design shop at Boat & Bikini Expo check out the many and varied beach items on the wall.
