Fly with you! Long time, no see! I thought I'd do a ranking on the
events the original Pixie Hollow had. Before I get to this, here are a
few things I'd like to mention:
- This list only includes events from the ORIGINAL Pixie Hollow, remember those?
tried to be objective in making this list (number of quests, decorated
meadows, etc) but this list is based on my opinion as well so your list
may be different
- In order for an event to qualify, there must have been an event blog post and/or an official badge about that event
Pixie Hollow's events have developed between 2008 and 2013, I focused
more on later versions of events that repeated for this list
you don't remember much about Pixie Hollow's events or haven't
experienced a lot of them, you can learn more about them here:
- And finally, I have nothing against any of the events except for maybe the one at the bottom. In fact, I really appreciate them.
#28-Pixie Hollow Farewell (2013)-While
everyone got a free membership and the ice palace, frost forest and
Mermaid Grotto were open with TONS of nostalgic giveaways, I didn't
enjoy this event because the announcement of Pixie Hollow's closure was
so abrupt. In fact, it was the only event I didn't enjoy. What's the
point of all those gifts if you only have a month or less to actually
enjoy them? And as for the unicorn, I see it as part of Camp Pixie
Dust/the End of Summer Sparkler.
#27-Berry Harvest Festival (2008)-I
am sure none of you remember this (even I didn't remember it at first)
as it was one of Pixie Hollow's first ever events. While it was a cool
idea I brought back in my blog, it was only held during the Beta event
meaning there wasn't much. All it really had was a badge and a sparkling
event gift. It was really short too.
#26-Sweet Week (2009 to 2013)-The
main focus of this event was to obtain a certain item or silly sweets
from the baking talents by putting a cookie jar or cookie tray in your
home. But other than Dulcie's visit in 2012 (which was AWESOME), a small
gift in 2013 and a delicious craft that was actually designed by a
Pixie Hollow player, there really wasn't anything. There were no quests,
no badges and no decorations. And every year, this event only lasted a
#25-Art Month (2010 to 2013)-Art
Month was a great time to check out artsy outfits and decorations as
well as new hairstyles. There was even a home decorating contest.
Regardless, it was a long stretch of nothing much. Just like Sweet Week,
Art Month didn't have any badges. But there were sometimes open
ballrooms with gifts and a famous fairy visit almost every year (Bess
visited in 2010!). There were even five quests about the Northern Lights
#24-Autumn Equinox (2012)-I
love autumn, and I remember really enjoying this event from the golden
acorn hunt to the golden acorn necklace gift in the beautiful ballroom
to the Minister of Autumn's visit. But the autumn meadows weren't
decorated and there weren't any quests.
#23-End of Summer Sparkler (2009 to 2012)-I
REALLY wish it could be placed higher not just because I am a light
talent but because it has some of my favorite decorations. But only two
meadows were decorated. 2009 was really the only year with a Sparkler
event gift and only 2009 and 2010 had Sparkler quests (as the rest I
consider to be Camp Pixie Dust quests). But the decorations were
#22-Summer Splash Party (2009 to 2013)-Just
like the Sparkler, it was a small event that overlapped with Camp Pixie
Dust. But what makes this a bit better is the lucky fish tradition
#21-Nature Days (2009 to 2013)-The
biggest year for Nature Days was 2010 as it had a beach cleanup, a Tink
quest with a cool reward and a Tink and Kit visit. But other than that
year, there wasn't much to Nature Days other than a quest for a badge.
2012 has the second best Nature Days as there was a Ballroom gift and a
#20-Tink's Arrival Day (2008)-This
was Pixie Hollow's first official event after the Beta ended. The idea
was to look for the sign to the secret party location (Cottonpuff
Field). The meadow had very fesitve decorations and a free gift. Fairies
also earned a badge for finding it. Tink even visited, which I think
was the first time she could actually talk to fairies. But since it was
only in 2008, that's all there really was.
#19-Changing of the Leaves (2008 to 2012)-Fun
fact: it was actually Pixie Hollow's first ever event! It improved a
lot since 2008 with the leaf painting seasons which show how fairies
change the seasons. There was always a badge (2 in 2009) along with a
quest (also 2 in 2009) and sometimes a famous fairy visit. There was
even a ballroom gift in 2013.
#18-Autumn Revelry (2009)-I
loved the blue pixie dust and seeing Tink's balloon in the autumn
meadows. And there were even three quests for three awesome awards and
blue pixie dust collecting. The event even had one of my favorite event
gifts; a toy version of Tink's balloon. Tink herself even visited in her
#17-Welcome Home Party (2010)-The
decorations were AMAZING and I loved the gifts too (there were a lot of
gifts to collect). The quest reward was even one of (in my opinion) the
best designed badges. It was the first badge that allowed access to a
special location, which in this case was Lizzy's Fairy Home. Not only
did Tink and Vidia visit, but the Minister of Autumn did as well with
#16-Never Dove Egg Hunt (2009 to 2013)-The
main focus every year was the egg hunt (and a Fawn quest with wonderful
rewards every year), but in later years there were awesome ballroom
gifts and amazing spring decorations in Havendish Square. There was even
an adorable baby hatchling in the ballroom! I enjoyed the 2012 and 2013
quests in particular.
#15-Great Games (2009 to 2010)-I
remember really liking the talent colored banners all over Pixie
Hollow. The quests were even fun talent game marathons. In 2009 all 5 of
the main characters visited while Slate visited in 2010. There was even
a talent game competition for an honors badge.
#14-Great Winter Light Up (2008 to 2012)-While
it wasn't much of an event in 2008, the beautiful Winter Woods
decorations were added in later years. Areas of Havendish were even
decorated in 2012 with the snow in Havendish Square, the holiday kitchen
in the theatre, and possibly my favorite version in the ballroom along
with a wonderful gift. In later years there would be a Silvermist quest.
The pixie pals and sometimes Silvermist also visited.
#13-Spring Celebration (2009 to 2013)-The
celebration started with a hidden lucky clover in 2010 and developed
into a golden clover hunt. There were even rainbows in the Spring Valley
that could be seen from the map. The ballroom had the Everblossom and
the Minister of Spring and sometimes Rosetta visited. I really liked the
event gifts. The only downside is that it didn't have any quests.
#12-Sister Celebration (2012)-This
event introdcued the beautiful Frost Forest. The ballroom had a
snowmaker and a sparkling wing necklace (which I LOVED). There was a
Tink quest and the badges were absolutely beautiful. Periwinkle even
made her first appearance.
#11-Pixie Hollow Games (2011)-After
completing the Marina quest, fairies could experience an interactive
preview of the Fairy Coliseum and get a free gift. There were banners
all over Pixie Hollow cheering on the different talents. After the games
aired, fairies could earn an Animal Derby Original Racer badge, see a
slideshow of the games' highlights in the theatre and talk to Rosetta
and Chloe (this was the only time Chloe ever visited Pixie Hollow). The
pixie pals visited as well. All the decorations and stuff to do makes
this probably the best movie event.
#10-Fairy Friendship Festival (2009 to 2013)-The
purpose of this event was wonderful and the decorations were beautiful.
I really liked the quests and their rewards. There were a lot of famous
fairies that have visited over the years and Rosetta, Vidia and
Terrence even made their first appearances in the Hollow during this
event. In 2011, there was even a friendship gift station and a snowball
#9-Spring prep (2010 to 2013)-Okay,
that is not really an official event, but I always considered it to be
seprate from the Spring Celebration. The preparation period for Spring
was typically longer than the event itself actually and it usually had
two quests and one or two badges. It was always cool that the storm or
drought were seen from the Fly Up map. Famous fairies like Rosetta and
the pixie pals would typically visit. In 2011 and 2013 there were even
#8-Garden Tea Party (2009 to 2013)-The
tea tables were very pretty. 2012 and 2013 even had a kitchen which I
loved playing in. I really enjoyed the quest rewards for this event as
well. The pixie pals and sometimes Rosetta and the Minister of Summer
would visit. I also really liked interacting with the tea tables using
the hats and emotes. The 2011 ballroom was also awesome.
#7-Fairy Feast (2008 to 2012)-Originally
named the Autumn Jubilee, it was a very interactive event. The
cornucopia would get filled up in the earlier years and fairies could
help make soup and cake in the later ones. I really enjoyed this event's
decorations from the cornucopia to the autumn leaves to the food
tables. There was even the previously mentioned kitchen in 2012. I
really liked the ballroom gifts and the quests, with the one from 2011
having very cute animals. While the pixie pals usually visited, the
event was unfortunatly only a week long in 2011 and didn't have any
visitors. But it is usually longer.
#6-Sports Camp (2011)-This
was a very long event being 10 weeks long. Similar to the Great Games,
the talent game meadows would be decorated with the talent banners.
Havendish Square and its areas were decorated as well and I really liked
the lap pool in the ballroom with the interactive smoothie stand
(anyone remember it???). There were several badges, quests with trophy
rewards, gifts and famous fairy visits. Lyria even told the story about
the garden talent losing streak.
#5-Silly Days/Mermaid Party (2009 to 2013)-They
were two seprate events in 2013 but they were the same all other years.
I loved this event because Snowflake is actually a merfairy. There was
Mermaid Grotto, tons of gifts and interactive surprises, a comedy show, a
quest, and visits from the pixie pals and Tink or Silvermist. I LOVED
the theatre from 2013.
#4-Winter Wonderland Party (2008 to 2012)-Christmas
is my favorite time of year and this event may have my favorite
decorations. There was even the beautiful ice palace. There were so many
things to interact with during the event and a few badges to earn, as
well as a lot of gifts. The Minister of Winter and the Pixie Pals would
visit. The reason why this event isn't higher is because other than the
light up quest being avaliable, there would typically be no quests
during this event. However, there were 12 short quests in 2009 with all
the famous fairies which gave out 12 ornaments based on the 12 Days of
#3-Animal Mothers Day (2010 to 2013)-It
started out as a smaller, week long event (though it did have Beck
attending parties and a quest about building First Flight). But it got a
big upgrade in 2011. I LOVED the flowery decorations. There were
adorable baby animals to take care of all over Pixie Hollow along with
several event gifts (usually 4), a quest and a visit from the pixie pals
and sometimes Fawn.
#2-Animal Masquerade (2008 to 2012)-I
loved all the costumes avaliable in the stores. Also, almost every
meadow was decorated with gourd lanterns. There was even a haunted
dollhouse in the theatre in 2012. You were able to gain tons of
wonderful gifts from trick or treating all over the Hollow. On top of
that, there was usually a quest with a cool award and a visit from the
pixie pals. Beck even showed up with her animal friend in 2010. There
were even pet feeding bowls!
And #1...Camp Pixie Dust! (2010, 2012 to 2013)-Back
in the day, this was the event I looked forward to the most. It was
very long being 12 weeks in 2012 and 2013. But there were new activities
every two weeks. There were a lot of badges, quests (some of my
favorites with some of my favorite awards), decorated meadows (including
the secret hideouts from 2013), crafts and famous fairy visits. Every
area of Havendish was decorated for Camp, even Cassie's Costume Shop!
Lyria even told her campfire stories. There was a lot going on in Camp
Pixie Dust every year, which is why I put it at #1.
