PlayOnline: The Sunbreeze Festival!
Enjoy the Season with the Sunbreeze Festival!
Every year at about this time, a seasonal festival is held in Vana'diel where the wild and even the wacky are regular occurrences! This year, the festivities have a new name--the "Sunbreeze Festival." So what will we be celebrating this time? And what does the festival hold for curious adventurers?

The Sunbreeze Festival!
My wings are wilting wretchedly in this warm weather, kupo!
It's times like this that I wish I wasn't covered in fur...
Of course, we moogles aren't the only ones suffering, kupo!
All the craftsmen, merchants, and even the city guards are languishing listlessly while longing for a little relief from the heat.
But never fear, kupo!
Officials from each nation have joined forces with the M.H.M.U. to lift the spirits of sweltering soldiers and adventurers alike with a brand-new proposal: the Sunbreeze Festival!
While continuing the popular activities of previous festivals, this event aims to lure cool breezes from the heavens with all the fun and dancing taking place here on the ground, kupo! The officials I mentioned earlier had a slightly different idea, but it was thankfully voted down. (Casting a humongous Blizzaga V above each city and showering the citizens with shards of ice didn't seem like the safest solution, kupo...)
Fantastic fireworks and sensational goldfish scooping are slated to make a return this year, along with the introduction of the Rakapopo Dancers; a Tarutaru troupe that performs the Far Eastern Sunbreeze Shuffle! And don't miss out on the wonderful prizes to be won from the addictive new game invented by Azimuth of the Alchemists' Guild, kupo! All these absorbing activities are sure to take your mind off the heat, so join your friends and help make the Sunbreeze Festival a refreshing success!
This event is scheduled to commence at Jul. 21, 2005 17:00 (PST).
The festival will take place in the following areas, with festive music and fireworks to liven up the evening from 19:00 to 6:00 (Vana'diel Time).

North Gustaberg/South Gustaberg/Bastok Mines/Bastok Markets
East Sarutabaruta/West Sarutabaruta/Windurst Waters/Windurst Walls/Windurst Woods
Western Altepa Desert/Eastern Altepa Desert/Rabao
Fireworks will be sold in these locations:

me wonders if the HQ bathrobes from last year with the "+goldfish scooping" will work this year.

I dont know how you guys do all this, but you are amazing. Is there any chance you could get the craft levels for the goldfish bowl? Ive had 10 people ask me if I knew the requirements to make it since this began(my access to a laptop and your site, among others, has made me a major source of info to my friends and ls), and Im dying to know myself. Ive got my first goldfish set and plan on getting another :)

This is my first FFXI festival; can anyone give me a clue as to how long it lasts? And I agree, you people do an amazing job, thank you! *very curious about the goldfish bowl, too*

Does anyone know how to obtain the new swimsuit looking gear? I must have the Elvaan shorts and Elvaan top. I noticed the +1 version improves clamming efficiency, so maybe you get it at bibiki bay?? which would also explain the swimsuit style. Also in the pol announcement, it mentioned a mini-gamy with Azimuth in the alchemy guild, i looked all over for that npc, anyone know where hes at?
Posted: 2005-07-22 10:45:08
I think the Swimsuits wont be add till at least a few days.
like right now were in part 1
and the mini-games will be comming soon, I guessing within the next few days at the most the mini-games would start.

According to everything Ive heard the extra minigames(at least one of them, possibly both) will begin sometime saturday.
