Isabelle at the Event Plaza in New Leaf
|Time||7:00 am — 9:00 am[nb 1]|
Like the real holiday, the entire village will gather on Groundhog Day to see if the local mole will predict winter or the long-awaited spring. At 7 AM, the villagers will congregate around the Wishing Well. At 8 AM, Mr. Resetti appears as "the mole." If the player speaks to Tortimer after the ceremonies before 9 AM, he will give out one of many flower models in honor of the occasion. In order to receive all of the flower models, the player will have to attend Groundhog Day multiple times. The bulletin board notifies players of the holiday.
During Groundhog Day in City Folk, Tortimer can be found standing in front of the town hall. If the player speaks to him, he will give the player a model of Mr. Resetti. The model cannot be bought at Tom Nook's shop.
Isabelle can be found at the Event Plaza between 6 PM and midnight. She will give the player a model of Mr. Resetti. There is also a cardboard cutout in the Plaza, where the player can poke their head and stand beside Resetti.
Like other minor events, the villagers will notify the player about this day.
