Hmm? Nothing special today… just kidding! It's party time, and then it's after party time!

The Party Girl

A Party is an event that can occur randomly, or be activated manually using a Party Center. Parties are mainly visual, having little functional effect on gameplay — with the exception of some exclusive vanity and novelty items available from the Clothier and Party Girl. A Party lasts until 7:30 PM, and if spawned randomly, begins at 4:30 AM.

A Party has a random 1/10 (10%) chance of occurring at any particular dawn ("thrown" by one to three NPCs), without the need for a placed Party Center. A Party will not occur randomly if a random party already occurred in the previous 5-10 days (the actual cooldown period is chosen at random when a natural party initiates), but a Party can still be triggered manually via the Party Center during that time.

When NPCs throw a Party, any placed Party Center activates, and a pink status message displays: "Looks like [NPC name], [NPC name] & [NPC name] are throwing a party." At its conclusion, the Party automatically deactivates with another pink status message: "Party time's over!" A Party can still be re-initiated manually afterward.
