- Not to be confused with the St. Patrick's Day 2014 Event
The St. Patrick's Day 2013 Event was the thirteenth content update to the game; the update took place in March 2013. It was released on March 7, 2013 to all players, and featured two new characters, a new building, a new decoration, and a new site. As well as all of the new content, the water in the player's towns turned green for the event which is a reference to the Chicago River being dyed green for St. Patrick's Day in real life.
This event was the first 'moderate sized' event, being followed by the 4th July 2013 Event about 3 months later. The 4th July 2013 Event was considerably larger than the St. Patrick's Day Event, though. On St. Patrick's Day (March 17, 2013), a small dialogue was added and the player received five free Donuts from Homer.
Below is a list of all the new content included in the original St. Patrick's Day Event on March 7, 2013. Please note that after the event, some of the items listed are no longer available:
|O'Flanagan's Pub||Tom O'Flanagan||1900|
|50ft Magnifying Glass||None||3000000|
*The Shamrock Topiary was unlocked by completing all of the St. Patrick's Day Tasks. You can only have one.
