On this day you'll be giving flowers to the villagers of Konohana Town. For each villager you give a flower to, you'll earn +1000 FP! It doesn't matter if the person is a marriage candidate or what your character's gender is. You will need to talk to each person once that day before the person will accept your flower.

You can give any type of flower except for the Mint, Chamomile, and Lavender, as they are herbs and not flowers. It also doesn't matter what flower you give, whether it is something basic or you go as far as making flower bouquets; you'll only earn +1000 FP no matter what you give.

Each fall season there will be a specific crop required for the festival. You can see the type of crop you need to grow on the calendar inside your house. Bring the crop to the Konohana Town Hall and give it to Ina during the festival times. If you don't grow the necessary crop, you can't participate in the festival. Your crop freshness rating has to be at Fairly Fresh or Super Fresh!.

The participants are Ayame, Gombe, Hiro, Ina, Kana, Mako, Nori, Rahi, Reina, Shen, Ying, and Yun.

The chances of winning are based on the freshness and star rank of your crop. To guarantee max freshness, do not pick the crop from your field until the day of the festival. You can increase your crop's star rank in preparation for the festival by using fertilizer on it. If you want 5-star crops though, you will need to use the Seed Maker machine to turn your upgraded crop back into seed and then fertilize/grow it again until it reaches 5 stars.

  • Second Place: +500 FP with each of the participants

If you are on an odd number year (1, 3, 5, etc.) then this will be a Sheep Festival. If you are on an even number year (2, 4, 6, etc.) then this day will be the Alpaca Festival.

You don't have to take your animal to the Town Hall after noon. Just go there and talk to Rutger in order to select the animal you wish to enter. The festival participants are Ash, Cam, Cheryl, Georgia, Grady, Irene, Jessica, Laney, Rutger, and Rose. Your sheep or alpaca must not be sick or pregnant. It is okay if the animal you choose for the contest doesn't have its wool.

The number of hearts your entered animal has will determine your chances of winning first place. If you enter an animal with 10 hearts, you're guaranteed to be the grand prize winner. At 6 hearts you have an 80% chance of bring the champion, 5 hearts is 50%, 4 hearts is 20%, and it continues down from there. You can not win 1st place if you enter an animal with 0 hearts, but you do have a 20% chance of taking 2nd place.

Alpacas can be bought starting on Fall 1 of your second year, which is the same season as the first alpaca judging festival. You will need to watch Jessica's shop for the alpaca to be available for sale and then pump its hearts up quickly by feeding it a Vegetable Treat, Nutra Treat, or Fish Treat every day until the festival day. A standard Treat will not help to increase an alpaca's hearts. You can buy the treats at Cheryl's counter at the animal shop.

  • First Place: win Rose Perfume (Sheep) or Great Ball Yarn (Alpaca), +1000 FP with each festival participant, and +30 FP with the animal
