It's coming up fast: the second annual Festival of Sands on Antonia Bayle - and this year it's only gotten better.

On the weekend of August 26, 27, and 28, festival coordinators will be hosting a whole slew of events with a variety of prizes for participants who choose to drop by. Low level, high level, it doesn't matter. The events are located in level 1 friendly areas so all may come and enjoy the festivities whether to watch or participate.

But what is the Festival of Sands, you might ask?

The Festival of Sands is a weekend-long celebration of the often-forgotten city of Maj'Dul. Players from the Antonia Bayle server will host events in the Sinking Sands showing pride in each of the Courts, ranging from riddle contests, to gambles of life and coin, to dueling. But keep an eye out; if you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of your local Tears grifter for an ongoing event throughout the weekend.

So come on out to the Sinking Sands for a weekend of adventure, excitement, and prizes!

The festivities kick off on Friday, August 26 at 8:00 EDT and run until Sunday evening.
