The Shamrock Shimmy seasonal event is underway. This is actually comprised of three different events: a Gardening event (Viva Festivale with Pavé [February 28th until March 11th]), a Fishing Tourney (Fishing Tourney #12 [March 14th until March 21st]), and a Gyroidite Scavenger Hunt event (Gyroidite Scavenger Hunt #9: Party Balloons [March 22nd until March 29th]). Additionally, there are progress rewards for completing different things during this overarching event, rewarding you with special clothing/furniture, Leaf Tickets and bells. Special to this event are kaleidoclovers, which you also receive for completing challenges, and can be used to complete other special Shamrock Shimmy goals.
A new event is on now: Viva Festivale with Pavé!
The event starts February 28th and goes until March 11th. There are two halves to the event.
In the first half (starting on February 28th):
Two types of seasonal seeds are available for planting: pink featherbloom seeds and blue featherbloom seeds. Both types of seeds can be received by completing animal requests. Pink featherbloom seeds can be purchased from Lloid. Blue featherbloom seeds can be received by sharing waltz festivibees and tango festivibees in other people's gardens.
Two types of rare creatures can be acquired. Waltz festivibees can be found on newly bloomed pink featherblooms. Tango festivibees can be found on newly bloomed blue featherblooms.
In the second half (starting on March 4th):
One new type of seed is available: orange featherbloom seeds. They can be acquired from completing requests or sharing ballroom festivibees or samba festivibees in other's gardens.
Two types of festivibees, ballroom and samba, can be found on newly bloomed orange featherblooms.
Capture enough of each type to gain prizes ranging from kaleidoclovers and Leaf Tickets to clothing and furniture.
This event in particular contains "Hard Tasks". These are bonus tasks for the event once you have completed the regular ones needed to acquire all the items. Completing hard tasks will grant you recoloured versions of items obtained throughout the event. Note that these items will not appear in the catalog, and will not count towards event completion.
