May Day runs from April 29 to May 7 this year. Players will be able to tour an “interesting island” that includes a large maze, which can be explored to collect items. From May 18 to May 31, New Horizons will celebrate International Museum Day. Much like last year, this will once again include the Stamp Rally event, which sends players through the museum on a hunt for stamps. The stamp card itself looks different this year, though the event itself seems to be unchanged.
In celebration of Reese and Cyrus’ wedding anniversary, New Horizons will host Wedding Season, which lasts for the entire month of June. Throughout this event, the community is encouraged to visit Harvey’s Island to take fancy wedding photos with Reese and Cyrus. Wedding-themed items will be available from Nook Shopping and Able Sisters throughout June.
Of course, the update features new seasonal items, including some for Mother’s Day, “Cheese Rolling,” and more. Be sure to check Nook Shopping to see what’s in store.
