    It makes sense from another standpoint, too - Whacking Day was disbanded after that episode. Yet another reason for EA not to revisit the event. As a consolation to players who weren't around for WD the items could be put up for acquisition at the same time, or tied into another mini-release ala this most recent update.

    While it seems like a great idea, and i do like it, im just not sure its big enough for a big event like summer, maybe a smaller one like Saint paddies day maybe?
    There's isnt really much that could be added as in prizes, maybe 2 or 3 but not 15( i.e personal/community prizes), as for skins the episode only has one character dressed up which is Smithers in his glitzy light up cowboy outfit.

    I still would really like to see this in game but maybe as a few days/week long event?

    Edit: typos

    This would be meant to replace the Whacking Day update, which is one of the smaller ones. I'm rewatching the episode as we speak, and it'd definitely work. We'd start off with the Springfield Fairgrounds. Personal prizes would be the spirit guide(coyote), the tortoise, Springfield Country Club(Golf Course), Pro Shop, the all-night furniture store, the two barflies, E.A.R.L. for the squid port, waterslide addition for KL, etc. and also, one thought- I don't recall ever being able to get the Simpson's sedan. There was a summer episode a while back called Summer of 4'2" where Lisa tried to be cool, this update could also give us her cool skin and also the sedan with all of the seashells attached to it. Just because this update would focus on the Chilli Cook-off doesn't mean that all of the prizes have to be related to that episode.

    Your idea is absolutely excellent! I would love it. However I don't think anyone has mentioned how the coyote was voiced by the man in black himself, Johnny Cash. It would be excellent if we could get the coyote as a permanent character. Although since Cash is dead, I'd understand if it wasn't voiced. I'd just be so happy to have him around, much like my joy for Snorky.

    I think this is a great idea! I love it when they take things in the show (like whacking) day and make it a event. This will probably come out eventually since it was a big event in the episode it was in and the summer is the perfect time for it because the summer is kind of empty when it comes to holidays they can make into events.

    Good idea, but this doesn't sound like it could make a big event. I mean what would come out with this update?

    Not a great idea what can you possibly accomplish out if this growing chili will probably take 12 hours and what do you do in the meantime
    I say we should have dolphins terrorizing sf like in the we get the aquarium spawning dolphins and tap them giving out fins that you could win prizes
