Festivale is a holiday that has occurred in the past and returns in New Horizons for the first time.
This holiday mirrors Mardi Gras in some respects and features the mascot Pave the Peacock.
So what is it all about and what can you expect to see?

What Is It?
The Festivale event is an annual one hosted by Pave the peacock.
The event is essentially a celebration of colour, craziness, and other sorts of fun items.
This can be compared to the real-life festival of Mardi Gras, which is held in New Orleans each year.
Festivale is a Spring event that happens in February or March depending on the year. Pavé hosts the event in front of the Event Plaza.
As some neighbours will tell the player, there will be no snow or rain during the entire day.
Festivale is quoted (by Nintendo Power) as an "all-day festival of color, costumes and craziness!".
The event takes place on the 15th February 2021.

Pave will give you the goal of collecting items over the course of the day.
In previous games, this has ranged from candy to features. So we can expect the same this time around.
As well, players will be able to earn some amazing rewards for completing this objective during the day.
Float like a feather, sting like a bee
These unique rewards will be dished out by Pave, but they're currently unknown.
