- Festivale Event – Feel the heat with the colorful Festivale event filled with dancing and flying feathers! On February 15, Dancer Pavé will arrive to your island’s plaza** to usher in some confetti and carnival spirit. On the day of the event you can capture colorful feathers floating on your island with your net and trade them to Pavé to receive a passionate dance number in return.
