Celebrate with the Summer Festival
- Sunny days, backyard parties, picnics, fruity drinks with those little paper umbrellas: Summer's coming!
- Summer Festival!
- We're happy to announce that from June 20th to July 10th (2007), Middle-earth will be celebrating with its Summer Solstice Festival! Each race knows it by a different name: Lithe Festival for the Hobbits, Summerdays for Men, Summerfest for Dwarves, or the Festival of Enedhin for the Elves. No matter who's enjoying it, the Summer Festival means dancing, drinking, games, and even fireworks!
- This two-week-long festival features a variety of quests, vendors, and special events throughout the lands. Be sure to visit all four festival areas - Duillond, Bree-fields Festival Grounds, the Party Tree, and Thorin's Halls - To celebrate!
- Special vendors will be on-hand to supply festival items like food & drink, pipe-weed, and fireworks. This is the chance you've been waiting for to finally get your hands on some special Elven Fireworks!
- What would a festival be without dancing? Meet up with a Dance Leader who will teach you new, race-specific dance moves. Soon, you'll be dazzling onlookers with your smooth dancing techniques that show your Summer Festival spirit!
- After you're finished dancing up a sweat, what better way to cool down on a hot summer night than with friends and drink? Sound good? Participate at the Inn League! It can be summed up in two words: tavern crawl. (Of course, after the quests are finished, those two words will probably come out as: taaaverrnnncraaaawlllIwuveyouguys!)
- Summer Festival quests include scavenger hunts, farming, and something called "Hobnanigans!" If you're not sure what Hobnanigans are, you should come to the Bree-fields Festival Grounds and find out. (Hint: It involves chickens.*)
- To learn more about these things, you'll have to keep checking back!
- *No chickens were harmed in the making of LOTRO.
