Spring is here and Pave is in town to celebrate as confetti fills the air and dance fills the hearts of the town's folk! Bye bye, snow! March is full of greenery in Animal Crossing: New Leaf! Pave, the peacock will be waiting in the plaza to dedicate today to this joyous occasion.

With that said, there is still work to do as the mayor and March offers the chance to gain more goodies offered by Chip during this month's fishing tournament! So it's time to warm our frostbitten hands from rolling up snow people and enjoy the sun.

Here is a list of Animal Crossing: New Leaf goodness that we can all look forward to, as we say goodbye to February and welcome in March.

The insects, fish, and deep-sea critters for this month are detailed in the list. Check back later this month for the list for April goodness!
