The first and third events of the day start in the Independent State - the Caledon Oxbridge Gateway's Winter's Night Ball.  With two events, there is plenty of opportunity to attend what looks to be an outstanding gathering!  For more information, please visit:

What: The Steam Santa and his Hard Working Elf Steel Welding and Ice Skating Ball

Where: The Piermont Landing, Wheatstone Waterways, New Babbage

Its time for New Babbage's premier monthly event, with the Piermont Landing December theme of "The Steam Santa and his Hard Working Elf, and Ice Skating Ball".  Contrary to rumors, the Clockwinder is not the elf, but regardless, I'm confident it will prove to be as popular as ever.  A note to remember, this is an "early" ball - it will start at 2pm SLT, vice the previous balls, which started at 6pm STL - so plan according!  For more information, please visit:
