The latest update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons version 1.11.0 is now available! This update re enables last years firework show events throughout August and adds some brand new items and seasonal items. Full release notes from Nintendo can be found below:

A happy summer to you all! That is, if it’s currently summer where you live. Residents in the Northern Hemisphere might be collecting summer shells, while residents in the Southern Hemisphere might be building a frosty Snowboy. The world is truly a fascinating place!

If you’re new to the Animal Crossing™: New Horizons game, part of the fun is participating in events that happen on your island from time to time. Let’s go over the upcoming events first and then we’ll let you know how you can participate. Please note that you’ll need to download the free update Ver. 1.11.0 (available July 29) to enjoy the upcoming events*.

Upcoming events

Fireworks Shows: Get ready for pretty colors and fun festivities! During the month of August, a fireworks show will be lighting up your island’s sky every Sunday after 7 p.m. You can even design your own fireworks by giving custom design patterns to Isabelle. And while you’re out celebrating, be sure to use Bells to buy in-game raffle tickets from Redd. If you participated in this event last year, please note that you may see some sweet, newly added prizes up for grabs (emphasis on the “sweet” part).

Newly added seasonal items

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