Harvest Moon Back to Nature - Winter Festivals

Aaand ... Here are the last festivals, Winter Festivals. Hope you'll like it!

Winter Festival

Dog Race
Day: Winter 10th
Time: 10.00 am
Location: Town Square
You can choose to join the competition or just come and watch :) If you want to join, make sure that your dog's heart level is at its highest, and don't forget to train your dog months before! Fall is the least season where you can start to train him :) Use the ball from Won, and never throw it to the pond or your basket. Believe me. I did it :(

When you win this, you'll get a medal. The gifts in the festival are the same like in the Horse Race. Here are some tips in winning the Dog Race:
a. Run with the same speed as your dog with the distant maximum 1 inch in front of it.
b. If it runs to the wrong direction, walk close to him and start again.
c. If it doesn't like you enough or you never trained it before, then it would be likely to disobey and just sit around :( But you can always try next year :)

Winter Thanksgiving (Valentine's Day)
Day: Winter 14th
Time: 06.00 am
Location: Your Farm
Every girl that likes you will give you a gift. If you want a chocolate then you'll need to change their hearts to blue. If they have different color, you'll get different gifts. To get all of the gifts, stay in your farm all day. Do not go anywhere. Just walk out your door and stay in your farm, you can clean the field or play with your dog. It's best not to enter any room for the day. If you come to the girls, they won't give you anything. 
if you already married to Karen and she has a red heart, she'll give you a chocolate.

Star Night Festival
Day: Winter 24th
Time: 06.00 pm

The girl who likes you the most will ask you to join the dinner with her parents. Don't be late! ;)

Location: top of Mother's Hill
You can come to Mother's Hill from 10.00 pm if you want to chat with some villagers first :) And you will watch the sunrise together with all the other villagers. Happy New Year!
That should do it for now, I'm working on some walkthrough and list of recipes and stuff, come back soon!

If you say yes, he'll like you more :) You need to get there on time or you'd be locked outside and Carter would be disappointed if you do that :( You'll sit and listen to some tunes, and the villagers will ask Karen to sing like an opera singer. spoiler at the end of the tunes you'll hear a crashing window and a bird, flying away from the place. Thanks to Karen's voice :p

Harvest Moon Back to Nature - Summer Festivals

Hi there! :D I just finished the Summer Festivals, hope you enjoy it! ;)

Summer Festivals

Swimming Festival
Day: Summer 1st
Time: 10.00 am
Location: Beach
This one is my favorite, you can get a power berry if you got a first place. And here's the how to:
a. Collect at least two power berry before you enter the competition
b. Press X until the color of your face is changing and then press and hold the triangle button. 
c. There are 5 contestants in the competition, without power berry you'd usually got a third place.
Oh, and try to talk with the girl you like. It's great to change the color of her heart :)

Chicken Festival
Day: Summer 7th
Time: 10.00 am
Location: Town Square
You can come and just watch the festival or you can even join the competition if you have a chicken.
It's best to give the chicken who has the highest heart level, it increases the chance for you to win :) And the winning chicken will lay golden eggs everyday, which is great for your incomes. Yaaay ;)
Here's the quick tips:
a. Quickly press X when your enemy--call it your chicken's enemy--just jumped
b. Do not press the X button if your chicken is in the edge of the arena or is facing the outer side of the arena

Tomato Festival
Day: Summer 12th
Time: 10.00 am
Location: Town Square
Come to the town square and every team will ask you to join them. You don't really get anything from Tomato Festival, but it's just fun to play for a day! :) And just like other festivals, all the stores are closed on that day, so if you have any schedules for buying some chicken feed or anything, don't forget to check your calendar before going out!

Cow Festival
Day: Summer 20th
Time: 10.00 am
Location: Town Square
You can enter your cow in this competition, and the winning cow does the same like a winning chicken, it will produce a golden milk! Just make sure its heart level is in it's highest, and you'll win it at no time! Don't forget to buy a brush from Saibara months before the competition :) You'll need that to speed up the heart level

The Fireworks Display
Day: Summer 24th
Time: 06.00 pm
Location: Beach
In the night of The Fireworks Display, you can watch it with a girl you like. She needs to have at least a purple heart for you. If you take her to the fireworks, she'll like you more. There's a chance that she might ask you on a date after the show, which is great ;)
It's also okay if you want to come to the show alone, and in the second year you can ask Kai to watch it together.

Harvest Moon Back to Nature - Spring Festivals

I just read a very good comment yesterday and promised to write about Harvest Moon Back to Nature - Festivals including all of the dates and tips. Let's start, shall we? ;)

Spring Festival

New Year
Day: Spring 1st
Time: 06.00 pm
Location: Inn or Town Square
In your first year you won't be able to celebrate New Year cause you're too busy with the farm. However, starting from the second year, you can celebrate it with the elders or with your peers :) The elders can be found in the Inn from 7.00 pm, while your peers will hang out in the Town Square. It is best to join the people who doesn't really like you, by joining the party, they will start to like you :)

you should ask a girl to dance with  you in Town Square!

Goddess Festival
Day: Spring 8th
Time: 10.00 am
Location: Town Square
There are two ways to enjoy this festival: alone or with a girl.
If you want to go alone, then you can just come after 10.00 am to the Town Square. Don't be too early cause the Mayor will stop you from entering the place, nor too late cause people would be likely to hate you.
If you have changed a girl's heart to purple before 6th of Spring, then you can ask her to accompany you to the Goddess Festival. Ask her on 7th of Spring, if she says yes, you'll come to the festival with her. spoiler After the festival, she'll ask you to accompany her to someplace quiet. 

Thanksgiving Festival

The point of this festival is to raise heart quickly and easier. You can give flowers to the girl you like and her heart will change faster than any other days :) If you already have a kitchen, you can bake some cookies and share it with the villagers.

 Horse Race
