Dear residents of Pawsville! This Saturday, on the 22nd of March, the mayor will be holding a ribbon cutting ceremony at the front entrance of the pet center! But this is not all we will be doing. Following the ceremony, the day will be filled with lots of fun events at the pet center including games, mini contests, food, dancing and even fireworks! Everyone who participates in this event will receive a free gift bag which you can add to your items sheet but please wait for one of the mods to note you your gift bag item before adding it yourself.
If you receive a gift bag, you will be sent a note where you will be allowed to place this item in your items sheet and 1,000 pawcoins will be added to your total pawcoins! Ontop of these pawcoins, you will still earn pawcoins for any artwork and literature that you submit towards the event. Extra points will be rewarded to those who get first, second or third places in the mini contests but more information about these can be found below!
As an extra incentive those who find a permanent partner during this event will receive a golden dog tag seen below! Simply send the group a note or a comment telling us who your new partner is before the event ends. You can trade this dog tag in to the shop for 500 pawcoins.
Basically this is an event to celebrate the first opening of Pawsville! It is also a chance for everyone who is new to interact and get to know each other. We are an easy going group, just for your fun and enjoyment so none of our events are mandatory but with this being our first event and a perfect opportunity for us to become a family, participation is strongly encouraged.
There is three ways in which you can participate in this event, the first being through artwork, the second through written stories and the third being roleplays in our chatroom! All artwork and literature for this event should be submitted to the events folder in our gallery. Ideas for how to participate might include your character enjoying their favourite food, playing a carnival game with friends, dancing like a goofball, watching the fireworks, or anything else that you can think of! All submissions can be sent between now and the 5th of April when the event will officially end.
Mini contests are a way for members to earn extra pawcoins and let their characters strut their stuff! When the event ends, first, second and third places winners will be announced and prizes will be awarded!

To enter in this contest, the rules are the same as above except that you would enter with your human character.
Best look-alike pet and owner

Basically all you need to do is imagine a carnival and that's the type of games that will be available for everyone to play. Games such as the ring toss, balloon darts, basketball toss, miniature golf, three pin bowling, can knock over, clown toss, fishing for ducks etc!
You can visit here for more ideas on carnival games
There will be lots of food stands set up around the center for you to stuff your face! Such as hot dog stands, fairy floss, ice cream, slushy machines, sausage sizzles, pizza stalls and heaps more! Some food is free, this is to encourage strays to come along and get a free meal. The pet catcher is also taking the day off so no strays will be harmed!
There will be a DJ playing music throughout the day and a dance floor where people can get down and boogy but there is also a selection of romantic tunes for those who want to share a slow dance <3
At the end of the day, make sure that you head outside to see the fireworks!
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask but if not, we hope that you enjoy our very first event and don't forget to head into the chatroom to roleplay with everyone! Our next event will be an Easter event!
