This was the 4th year of Cornflakes Week, and once again people got creative in the best way. The event even got a mention in New World Notes, a blog about Second Life.

It was a wild wonderful ride, thanks to all who took the time to come over and celebrate. Here are a few 'corny' facts you may not know, from the event Notecard.
"Cornflakes Week is a seven day annual festival. It's unique to Opensim.
It is independent of real world festivals linked to religion, culture, race, time zone, and season. It's about being silly, wearing costumes, dancing and creating. It is held in the final 7 days of February each year.
Cornflakes Week isn't really a 'Memorial' event - that makes it sound like it's limited to people who knew the man. Rather, it's a festival of silliness and friendship that takes its inspiration from Cornflakes Woodcock's creations, made of prims and in bright colors. It's about uniting the hypergrid!

You don't need to ask permission. You don't need to inform anyone, unless you want to, but of course, it helps to get a bigger party population, if you do. If you do want to add your event to the general publicity, you can advertise via the Cornflakes groups in G+ and Facebook.
"Cornflakes Week began with an idea by Thirza Ember with help from Foxx Bode, and Dorothea Lundquist, (who held the first official Corny Party at her famous Friday Night party on OSGrid) Virtual Christine (who helped set up the G+ community), Hylee Bekkers, Wordfromthe Wise and many more. The first Cornflakes Week was February 2015.
