June Festival Schedule

ROMA Vestalia & Bellonalia Schedule

Saturday 19th June

10am - Vestalia Ritual
The time has come again to honour Vesta, Goddess of Hearth and Home! Please join us in honouring Her with a ritual, that she might shed Her warmth and light on ROMA for another year!
Location: ROMA Sim

12pm - Vestalia RFL Scavenger Hunt
Can you find the precious treasure before it's too late? The Vestalia Scavenger Hunt this year will be raising funds for Relay For Life - two teams are going to split the monies evenly, ROMA Pro Vita and the Justice League Unlimited, who are providing the Grand Prize package. Each one of the 16 clue items to be found will cost either L$30 or L$60, depending if it has a gift in it or not. These are your RFL donations for this event, and we thank the generous contributors who donated all the prizes, especially our co-sponsor, the Justice League Unlimited who provided the Grand Prize package.
Location: Plaza, ROMA Sim

3pm - Vestalia Tavern Party
After such a long and exhausting day hunting, the victors retire to the Pompeii Tavern for drinking, dancing, and wagering. Come join them as we bask in the afterglow of an exciting day!
Location: Pompeii Tavern, ROMA Sim


Sunday 20th June

10am - Bellona Ritual
Our festivals begin with a ritual for Bellona, the Roman Goddess of War - sister of Mars, and Spiritual Mother of ROMA's Amazons. Little is known of Bellona's rites in Ancient times, save that they were held in Her temple on the Campus Martius - but we have our own ritual to honour Her on ROMA's Campus Martius.
Location: ROMA Transtiberim Sim

1pm - Bellona RFL Chariot Races
Watch the mighty agitatores (chariot racers) of Roma contest against each other in feats of skill and daring as they race around the Circus Maximus Hippodrome in Roma to your enthusiastic cheers! 'Bet' on your favourite charioteer by donating to his or her RFL kiosk and win a prize if your charioteer wins the day!
Location: Circus Maximus, ROMA Sim

3:30pm - The Bellona & Vesta Grand Feast
Our Festivals culminate with the Bellona & Vesta Grand Feast - our wind-down party from the hectic Bellonalia Chariot Races! Come dance with us to some relaxing tunes and pleasant conversation! (We'll also be having a trivia contest with ROMA's own trivia master, Mickey James!)
Location: Field of Mars, ROMA Transtiberim Sim
