Last night marked the first Animal Crossing: New Horizons fireworks festival, a recurring bit of fun on Sundays in August. Thanks to the new update we could chat with our villagers, toss a few bells towards Redd’s Raffle, and watch the night sky light up with our own custom patterns. While that alone is a fine celebration, Isabelle herself had something else to share on her Twitter account:
Happy summer, everyone! Don’t forget that our first fireworks show begins tonight at 7 p.m. You can watch it from islands in both the northern and southern hemispheres, so please be sure to join us. It’s going to be a blast! Hee-hee! pic.twitter.com/KFRk8xPJYV

The above artwork captures the spirit of summer nights with friends and neighbors – and money hungry foxes. If you missed out on the fun of the first fireworks festival, you can still check them out every Sunday night in August.
