What You Missed: Christmas in July Party!

This event recap originally appeared on The Glux Blog.

OK, OK I know it’s August. But last week it was July, and in the Japanese ACNL town of Wasabi, Mayor Neko was busy hosting a Christmas in July Party!

To make the town as festive as possible despite the heat wave, Mayor Neko went to work decorating Wasabi the old fashioned way. First she assembled her Santa suit, complete with Santa beard and boots! Then Mayor Neko spent an afternoon placing custom snow pattern tiles all over the town, to fake the appearance of snow. It was still obviously summer, but much more festive looking!

For those who want to copy this snow pattern, you can find the QR code for the pattern here!

Mayor Neko recruited Mayor JDubz to help with the wrapping of presents and dropping them all over the Gate area for the guests of the party! Many of the gifts were either festive themed or Nintendo themed!

In addition to the presents and the snow, a custom designed photo cutout standee was set up to be a Santa Photo-Op! Here are the QR codes if you want to have Santa in your town…

Finally the time had come, and lots of friends came by to celebrate! Thanks to everyone who joined in and participated! Below you will find a photolog of the guests and fun stuff we did. 🙂

MERRY CHRISTMAS IN JULY!!!

What You Missed: Super Awesome ACNL Garden Party!

Last weekend, on June 23rd, StreetPass Long Island hosted the Super Awesome ACNL Garden Party at the Clark Botanic Gardens in Albertson, NY.  We had an intimate gathering of enthusiastic Animal Crossing fans who came to tour Long Island’s botanical gardens and play Animal Crossing New Leaf via local wireless!

1013381_677056672311677_718577183_n
We walked around the gardens, found plenty of Public Works (“OMG a lamp post!” lol), saw some real-life tadpoles, and found inspiration for creating our own floral arrangements in our Animal Crossing towns!  After the tour, we settled into the picnic area to play some local wireless.  StreetPass Long Island handed out fan-made (created by SPLI Co-Founder, Debbie!) “Hybrid Flower Guides”, which included gardening tips, a flower checklist, and a color matchup chart for spawning hybrids in-game.

For the local wireless portion of the event, SPLI attendees were treated to free flower seeds, tree saplings and shrub starters for their Animal Crossing New Leaf games (provided by Debbie’s Japanese Animal Crossing New Leaf town, which she has been playing since January – no cheating, time traveling or hacking here!).  There was also an in-game scavenger hunt for Nintendo themed items and silver tools!  At the end we also had in-game prizes for the player with the highest HRA score (awarded the StreetPass prize pack, including ice cream cones and balloons!) and the player who had the most fossils donated to their town’s Museum (awarded the Silver Tool starter pack, including a silver net, rod, shovel and slingshot!).

We hope everyone had a great time at the Super Awesome ACNL Garden Party!  Let’s do this again soon!

Be sure to have your StreetPass settings turned ON in the game to fill up your StreetPass Plaza!

The Super Awesome ACNL Garden Party will be held at the beautiful Clark Botanic Gardens in Albertson, NY. It is literally a 2 second walk from the Albertson train station.

Directions:

By car:
Northern State Parkway: Take exit 29 (Roslyn Road), turn South onto Roslyn Road, then right onto I.U. Willets Road, followed by a right into the Clark Botanic Garden parking field, just before the railroad crossing.

Long Island Expressway: Take exit 37, and turn South onto Willis Ave. Go about 1 mile, and then turn left onto I. U. Willets Road. Go approx. 4 blocks, crossing over railroad tracks. Clark Garden is on your left.

By train:
Take any LIRR train to Jamaica Station. At Jamaica, transfer to the Oyster Bay Line (light green line – check your timetables!). Albertson station is a 20 minute train ride from Jamaica station. The Garden is immediately east of the station.  Insider’s Tip:  You can also transfer to the Oyster Bay line from the Mineola train station, so if you are coming from Huntington, Ronkonkoma or Farmingdale, you don’t have to ride all the way to Jamaica to reach the Oyster Bay line!

By bus:
N23 or N27 bus to I.U. Willets Road, then walk east 1/4 mile.

What You Missed: SPLI April Birthday Bash!

To celebrate the birthdays of several StreetPass Long Island group members, a meet up was planned at Dave & Busters in Farmingdale, NY on 4/28/2013.  The group had a lot of fun playing arcade games like Pac Man Battle Royale and Skee-Ball, and of course made time to play Mario Kart 7 and Find Mii II!  A cake was served to celebrate the birthdays of 4 different members in attendance.  Happy Birthday April Babies!
