The biggest fall event this October is Halloween! The event will be held October 31, from 5 PM to Midnight. However, you can prepare for the Halloween event all through October!
Jack, the Halloween Czar, will visit during the event itself and you can get special rewards from him, so make sure to prepare bucketloads of candy.
You will encounter special visiting characters as you progress through the game. Some of these characters organize or signal big events that are occurring or are about to occur on your island. When you see them, talk to them! They will tell you all about the big event and what you need to do to participate.
