The August update is in full swing for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Along with the new update, Fireworks have been introduced into the game and also a raffle hosted by Redd. Throughout August, a Fireworks display will be held every Sunday from 7 pm. Taking part in Redd’s Raffle will win you some cute prizes including sparklers, balloons, and fireworks! To help you get the most out of every Sunday, we will tell you how to create your own fireworks display and exactly what are Redd’s Raffle Prizes.

Creating Your Own Custom Animal Crossing: New Horizons Fireworks Displays

You can create quite a fireworks display by using custom designs. To do so, talk to Isabelle anytime on Sunday and ask her about creating a custom display. You will be able to choose up to 10 custom designs that you have created or downloaded. Once you have finished, Isabelle will inform you that she will have your designs ready to display during the night.

The fireworks display will begin at 7 pm and will run until 12 am. At any time, your designs will feature in the night sky in sequence at random periods. There doesn’t seem to be a definite time when they wll appear so you will have to be patient. The Fireworks will also shoot into the sky at random locations and at varied intervals. Some can be fairly distanced from each other and others can explode right on top of one another.

Getting an extra hand in the creativity department

If you feel like you lack the creativity to make designs yourself, you can download custom designs by using the screen in the Able Sisters’ Shop. The latest update has made some serious tweaks and now allows players to search for designs with ease. You can now simply type in a name or a word for something you are looking for like Mario, or Metroid and find custom designs created and shared by other people.

  • I might be reading it wrong but isn’t number 2 a Blue sparkler and not a Bed sparkler?

    • Yes, you’re right. An error on my part that I overlooked this typo. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
