Template:Event Infobox The Cherry Blossom Festival or Cherry Festival (according to the calender in Animal Crossing) is an event in the Animal Crossing series. This festival is celebrated in Japan and the United States. It is explicitly present from Template:AF to Template:AFe+ only, but trees continue to turn pink in later games. In games where the festival is celebrated, it lasts from April 5 until April 7.

Events

In Animal Crossing

In Animal Crossing, all regular and fruit trees (not counting ceder trees) will bloom pink between April 1 and April 7. The petals will start showering across the town from April 5 to April 7. The town's villagers will become excited about this sudden transformation, and the player may visit the mayor to learn about the festival and its meaning to the town. At the end of this explanation, Tortimer will give the player the Pink Tree Model. Two villagers will be at a table on the right, one will be drinking fruit juice while the other side will be clapping and laughing. There's also one villager that will be dancing around on the left.

During the Cherry Festival, the town's hourly music will use slightly different instruments on every hour. Just like it does on days when it's snowing.

In Animal Crossing: Wild World

The Cherry Blossom Festival is not present in Wild World; however, pink cherry blossom petals will appear on the town's regular trees (including fruit trees) on April 1, and will remain until the end of the Flower Fest on the second Monday of the month.

In Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf

In subsequent games, the festival is not specifically celebrated, but the town's tree leaves (except for ceder trees) will be replaced with pink cherry blossom petals in early April. In City Folk, this takes place from April 5 to April 7, while it takes place during the first ten days of April in New Leaf.

Additionally, in New Leaf, the Town Tree's leaves will turn pink, and pink petals will blow around the town. And all fruit trees in the town will remain with leaves and no flowers, being the first Animal Crossing game to not allow fruit trees to bloom.
