PlayOnline: The Sunbreeze Festival!
Posted by: Cuer - Wed Jul 20th, 2005 11:54 am EDT
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).
