During days of Fireworks Shows, you can find kimonos and yukatas on sale at Able Sisters. Make sure to go into the Changing Room to see all the designs!

Villagers might wear Yukatas too

If they like the colors and style of the clothing you give them, there's a chance they might wear a given yukata or kimono during the Fireworks Show. However, from our testing it seems pretty random which villagers wear what, so it's not 100% certain.

Note that after 7 PM, all your villagers will talk about is the Fireworks and you won't be able to gift them any clothes!

Items from Redd's Raffle
