    Opening Ceremony - July 4th at 9PM BST (4PM EDT)
    The Three Peaks Summer Event begins with our opening ceremony. At Moria East Gate (/warp Moria East Gate) there will be speeches and explanations of the various activities that will take place during the event. This will be followed by a great dance/music party to make many a dwarf jealous.​

    Great Lore Tour - July 8th, 9th, & 10th at 9PM BST (4PM EDT)
    Our major event for the Three Peaks Summer Event is the famous Great Lore Tour. The tour will be split over three days so you have time to take in all the lore and server information on every major location built on the server. This event will be led by the Guides. Look forward to a few hours of lore and jokes.​
    • July 8th - Eriador
    • July 9th - Eregion & Rhovanion
    • July 10th - Rohan & Gondor
    Awards & Closing Ceremony - July 12th at 9PM BST (4PM EDT)
    A tradition of the summer events, the award ceremony returns to bear the great Superfish trophies to those very most deserving in many, many categories. All of the nominees will be suggested and voted on by you! You can find out more out that process here. The awards will be handed out on our Summer Event Server (IP to be added) in our fantastic and afterward we will sadly say farewell to the summer event until next year.​

    Fun fact: We Canadians know WAY more about America than Americans know about Canada.

    ....hmm perhaps we should get back on topic....this festival will be great! (Topic saved;))
