Fireworks, celebrations galore sounds throughout New Fizz City, as the annual Fizzypendence Day has once again rolled around. The streets are filled with citizens and trainers alike celebrating the day that Fizzytopia had became its own independent region. The already normally lively city becomes buzzing with pride and joy for all of Fizzytopia. This celebration is proving to be a roaring success for all involved. Staffers all have big smiles on their faces as they see the turnout for this beautiful sunny day. Vendors and shops also love this day, too, as customers line up to buy Fizzypendence merchandise, ranging from statues of the founders to collectable Lapras plushies for the mascot, Nessie.
In the middle of the Municipal Plaza, Mayor Leopold Loffley stands upon a podium to give his speech to all onlookers. “Ladies and gentlemen, thank you all for showing up on this wonderful day. I, for one, am proud to be the mayor of this city. Today marks the anniversary of when this great region decided to stand on its own two feet. When I look out here, I see everything that made this land what it became: trainers who showcase the bond that we share with our Pokemon; entrepreneurs who show how creative our industries can and will be for now and future generations to come; volunteers who are the real backbone of our communities for without them many would be without food or homes; and you, the fine citizens without whom this would all be impossible. Thank you all for taking time out of your busy lives to show your support.” The mayor gives a bow before stepping off the podium, no doubt to comb that glorious moustache that he is well known for.
The nearby band starts to play familiar patriotic tunes as different events start up. Among them are eight events that will play the role for you, the player characters will be participating in. And do not let these stifle your creativity, please do any events you can think of, but please also include one Day Event and One Night Event.
In Central Park, a Picnic is underway. Here you may enjoy a nice already-packed picnic basket for you and your Pokemon to enjoy. If that doesn’t sate your hunger, there is also an eating competition for bragging rights. Either way, it’s all enjoyable food. This food is said to expand your Pokemon's palette.
The Great Fizzytopian Parade is about to start on High Street, but don’t let that deter you from entering in. You can design your own float and run it through the parade for all to see your creative side. Or maybe you just want to sit by and watch the parade, that’s fine too. Sparkly and shiny items will glisten throughout this event, maybe even some prizes worth more than sentimental value.
In Knowledge Square, a locally owned and operated Play is being put together, and they’re wanting all sorts of volunteers for it. It is an accurate™ recreation of the founding of Fizzytopia. All are welcome to join, even Pokemon, though there will be a Pokespeak translator for them off to the side. Atmosphere is important and they might give away some things that helps enhance it.
If you’re feeling a lot more sporty, there is the Decathlon. Ten different physical events where you and your Pokemon can compete. You don’t have to participate in them all, but it is highly encouraged. Now this is not a strict competition, it’s more for fun, thus no need to hold this over two days. There are some things here that will help power the local Pokemon, maybe you'll run into some of them.
If you’re feeling musically inclined, you should check out the Concert in Knowledge Square. Heavy metal and rock bands play both original songs and remixed versions of your favorite patriotic tunes. Some of them even sell CDs for you to rock out to on the road.
Nothing beats a classic Fireworks Show. In Municipal Plaza, you can sit and enjoy the beautiful pyrotechnics from afar. Join in with some sparklers and other safe-for-kids-and-Pokemon fireworks to really show your more explosive side. They even give some things that your Pokemon can hold for themselves.
If dancing is more your style, there’s the Rave. Come grab a neon stick or other glow in the dark as you party the night away. In addition there is a light show that will guarantee to draw you in. Please no flash photography or TM Flash usage. Surely there will be something here that will capture your attention.
Finally, there is the Bonfire in Central Park. Grab something wooden or burnable and give in to your inner pyro. Roast marshmallows, hotdogs, or any other treat over it. Not to mention it gets cold at night, so why not just enjoy a little heat? Snacks are always great and there's even some here for you to have.
As I said before, choose ONE Daytime event, and ONE Nighttime event. This event will end on the 22nd of April 12:00 A.M. Fizzy Bubbles Time (So 7:00 P.M. EST). Please have your post in by then. As always, rping isn't required but it is very much encouraged. And one final rule, please oh please don't break this one, you know who you are.
That being said, have fun.
Also because I'm a genius who never forgets anything eeeverrrr, I've been informed by someone that I um...didn't forget to put this down
Bond is not counted for this event. You may claim $250 for writing 250 words only once in this event.
