During the Egg Festival, a small shop is open where you can purchase strawberry seeds for 100G and a plush bunny for 2,000G. Purchase as many strawberry seeds seeds as possible and plant them after the festival ends for a huge profit when the strawberries are harvested.
When the festival ends, you will be returned home at 10PM.
During the egg hunt, you have 51 seconds to search through the town for randomly placed eggs. The character who finds the most eggs is awarded a prize of a straw hat. You can only win the straw hat once. after that you will be awarded 1000G each year for winning.
