The Cherry Blossom Festival is an event in the Animal Crossing series in early April.


In Animal Crossing

The town undergoes an incredible change during the Cherry Blossom Festival. Regardless of whether or not any cherry trees have been planted in the town, all deciduous trees will burst into pink bloom, and pink petals will fall from the sky. Town villagers become very excited about this sudden transformation and if Tortimer visited, he will explain more about the festival and its meaning to the town. At the end of his explanation, Tortimer will give award the Pink Tree Model. During the festival, the hourly music is slightly different.

At the Wishing Well, various villagers gather to celebrate, sitting on tatami mats and eating picnic foods in the Japanese version, with special music that differs between the N64 version (and subsequent Japanese versions for the Gamecube) and American Gamecube version. The Japanese version is a traditional song based on Japanese folk music, while the American version is more blissful and suited for an American audience. Eventually, the N64 version of the song was remixed as Spring Blossoms, a secret song obtainable from K.K. Slider.

Mom mails a letter during the festival.

In subsequent games, the event is not specifically celebrated, but all of the non-fruit and non-evergreen trees' leaves will be replaced with pink cherry blossom petals, and will continue to be so through the duration of the Flower Fest.

In New Leaf

Similarly to City Folk, there is no festival, but the non-fruit and non-evergreen tree leaves will be replaced with pink cherry blossom petals during the first ten days of April in New Leaf. Blossom petals can be seen falling from the sky on some days.
