I was lucky enough to get shoved on the blogger preview list by means of raffle. I will say that some of the people were “obvious” to win but I will say it looks like the others were totally random — which is nice. This is the first event preview thing I’ve ever done or event got in to/invited to. I’d say this is mainly because no one likes me. It’s a pretty well-known fact, even to myself so I think the fact that it was a raffle worked in my favour. Regardless, I’ll probably be coming and going and lurking there until they kick me out. It’s amazing to see a fair without the lag. It’s amazing to actually, like, see things.
The fair itself is composed of four sims. Multiple sims reduce lag and spread out stores allowing for easier shopping in high traffic and the design and layout are very minimal which will make browsing even nicer. I hate when events and fairs are overly extravagant. We won’t see half of what you built, honestly. It will just be grey — I promise.
This list is probably not final. Akeyo was there when I originally made the list and wasn’t there when I checked back but for the most part, I’m sure this won’t change much.

The Fair opens Tomorrow, Saturay May 14 2011 at 12pm SLT (noon) so be ready to TP in to what ever sim you want to first. I have no map but I assure you, the build is extremely easy to navigate.
