On the first day of the year, go to the Beach between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm. All of the residents get together to pound rice into Rice Cake (mochi). At the end of the festival Thomas will supply you with Rice Cake. You can ship it to complete your Shipped Items List, or cook recipes with it.
Spring 14: Spring ThanksgivingEdit
In Harvest Moon DS Cute, the bachelors who have Purple hearts or higher will stop by your farmhouse one-by-one to deliver their own Cookies. You will meet with Marlin if you leave your house between 6:00 am and 7:00 am, Gustafa between 8:00 am and 9:00 am, and Rock from 10:00 am and 11:00 am.

Spring 18: Duck FestivalEdit
On the 17th, Popuri will meet you at your farmhouse door and ask if you would like to submit a Duck for the festival. If you select your Duck, she will take it away until the 18th. Go to the Beach between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm to star the judging. If your Duck wins then it will increase its level and you will earn 100 Farm Degree points.
Spring 22: Cooking ContestEdit
This day is one of the few times you will meet up with the jolly Gourmet, the cooking expert from Mineral Town. Owning the Kitchen and utensils is a must if you want to participate. Visit the Beach between 10:00 am and 12:00 pm and talk to the Gourmet. He will tell you the utensil that you are required to make a dish. You then must leave the Beach and return to your house to cook a dish from the category.
Return back to the Beach before 6:00 pm with your cooked dish and give it to the Gourmet. Your selection will then be judged against the 4 other participants. You can earn 100 Farm Degree points if you win the contest.
