We can all agree that Animal Crossing: New Horizons‘ first seasonal event, Bunny Day, was too much. It lasted too long and resulted in an avalanche of eggs, making it hard to craft anything that wasn’t a Bunny Day recipe. Hopefully the next several events, which Nintendo has recently outlined, will fare much better.

The next event, beginning today, is Nature Day. Nature Day is a week-long event with special Nook Miles challenges that feature goals that have to do with nature, such as planting trees and watering flowers. Nature Day runs through May 4th.

Starting May 1 is the May Day Tour event. Between May 1 – 7, players can go to the airport and use a May Day Ticket to travel to a unique island that features a familiar visitor. Be prepared, the May Day Ticket is one-time use only.

After that is International Museum Day, which runs from May 18 – 31. This event will feature a Stamp Rally, where players can view their collected fish, insects, and fossils in the museum, and receive stamps in their stamp card and earn rewards.

Finally in June it’s Wedding Season. Wedding Season will run the entire month of June, and involve Harvey’s island. Visiting Harvey’s island during this event will allow players to take anniversary photos of married couple Reese and Cyrus. Players can earn wedding-themed items as a result.

Two new non-seasonal character events are also being added today (April 23). The first is Leif, a nature-lover who can visit your island with his traveling Garden Shop. Leif sells shrubs, flower seeds, and other foliage.

The second is Jolly Redd, an art dealer whose Treasure Trawler boat can visit the island to sell art and furniture. However, players will need to figure out which are genuine and which are fake. Genuine art can be donated to the museum in the new art gallery.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available on Nintendo Switch. It’s rated E for Everyone.
