As I was sitting here last summer, watching it rain, I decided to "attempt" a festival lot. After 3 weeks of building, play-testing, changing and whatnot this lot is the result. It isn't part of my hometown series as it only has a fair once a year so doesn't apply (although this lot is inspired by the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede), but as this is a game I wanted a really nice woodland themed festival lot to reflect the surrounding area of northern British Columbia. Welcome to the Spruce Ridge Festival Grounds!

As you'll probably notice, the pics were taken in different locations. This is because I was testing the portability of the lot to ensure I didn't screw up the festival portion. Seems I did it correctly after a couple installs.

It has a lot going on so I'll try to describe what is definite:
There is a year-round casino, bathrooms, roller coaster, grandstand and racetrack. The seasons have their different inclusions which are the standard game items plus the carousel and whatever else I could find to add so my sims would be well entertained! Of course, being the realist I am, I "tried" to make it realistic in the process O_o

I severely play-tested this lot but PLEASE leave a comment to let me know if you find anything that I easily could have missed!

There was no custom content used in the creation of this lot. Note: A couple of the pics show a Canadian Flag. These were taken with my gameplay file so I could capture the different seasons, which has the replacement flag. The building of this lot did not incorporate the flag and it is not in the gamefile. The main shots taken of the front and summer overview of the lot show the correct in-game flag.

Expansion packs used: All but Showtime, Supernatural, and Into the Future.
Stuff packs used: Fast Lane, Outdoor Living & Movie Stuff

Store Items used:

The Complete Barnacle Bay Adventure - for the Grog Barrel No other items from the world were used.

More Holiday Presents for the Holiday Tree

Note: For those that don't have all these store items, but would still like to use the festival portion of the lot without the roller coaster, casino and/or carousel, the only items needed would be the Royales Window, the Woodland Counter, the Rustic Kerosene Wall Lamp, the Sims Classic Heinmeity Column and the Sims Classic Survival of the Fittest Fixture , however the casino building would be "empty" but still have the bar and washrooms. The grandstand/racetrack is all game items "except" the barrels, which are the grog barrel from Barnacle Bay.

I had scads of fun building this lot, and I hope you have as much fun playing it!
