Spring is over and it's time for Summerfest!
At this time every year, adventurers gather in the towns to kick back and take a break from their usual daily activities. It is a time for players from all nations to come together and swap tales of their exploits.
However, night is when Summerfest really heats up. The ensuing darkness sets the stage for a grand display of fireworks in the sky and on the ground. Countless bazaars line the streets and music fills the air. Adventurers of all shapes and sizes strike up conversations with complete strangers when not dancing hand in hand with their companions.
The Moogles, as well, have devoted themselves to making this summer a memorable one. Participate in their events to receive wonderful items that will make your Summerfest even more exciting!
Summerfest will be held from Jul. 23 to Aug. 8th, 2004.

With Summerfest kicking into high gear across various lands, it appears that the merchants have been getting into the festive spirit as well, offering various new items.
Those familiar with the customs of different lands say that the equipment the merchants sell may be of an Eastern origin. Curiously, the goods closely resemble the items used in an event known as Goldfish Scooping.
Goldfish Scooping is a traditional game often played during the summer months. People use fragile "scoops" to skim the water in order to catch as many brilliantly colored goldfish as they can--before the paper on the scoops rips.
Trading goldfish to a merchant will earn you points based on the type of fish you catch. These points can be exchanged for a plethora of exciting Summerfest items.
So if you hear one of these peddlers, you know what to do! Go and give Goldfish Scooping a try! Who knows, you might just get hooked!
The NPCs will be at:
West Ronfaure G-10 South Gustaberg E-8 East Sarutabaruta H-8 Rabao F-7
-About reopening the "Test of Courage" event
The Test of Courage event was brought to a close as the Goldfish Scooping event opened. However, due to the popularity of the event, we have decided to reopen it, and have the event run until the end of Summerfest.
Take your best shot at both events, and above all, have fun!
Test of Courage involved finding a partner of the opposite sex and being sent off to run through high level dungeons as a level 1 character. You had to find the marker to get the key item and then warp home.
