Get ready for August fireworks and newly added seasonal items

Happy summer to you all! At least, if you currently live in the summer. Northern Hemisphere residents can collect Summer Shells, while Southern Hemisphere residents can build icy Snowboy. The world is truly a fascinating place!

If you're new to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, it's fun to take part in the events that take place on your island from time to time. Let's take a look at the upcoming events first and then let you know how to get involved. Please note that you need the free update Ver.

Upcoming events

Fireworks Shows: Get ready for beautiful colors and fun parties! Every Sunday after 7pm in August, the sky on the island is lit up by fireworks. You can even design your own fireworks by giving Isabelle custom design patterns. And if you're celebrating, make sure to use Animal Crossing Bells to buy in-game lottery tickets from Redd. If you attended this event last year, remember that you might see some sweet newly added rewards up for grabs (emphasis on the "sweet" part).

Newly added seasonal items

As always, check out Nook Shopping via Nook Stop in Resident Services for seasonal items. You will find a selection of articles based on special days.

At the intersection of animals: new horizons

Relax on a desert island and create your own paradise by exploring, creating and customizing in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Your island escape contains a wealth of natural resources that can be used to create everything from tools to supplies for creatures. You can catch worms in the morning, chat with the lovely locals, decorate your paradise or enjoy the sunset on the beach while fishing in the ocean. The time of day and season correspond to real life, so every day on your island is an opportunity to look and find surprises all year round.
