Homerpalooza Prize Guide: Act 1 (Rock), Prize 1 Pig Balloon

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Put another dime in a jukebox and grab your dancing shoes, because Homerpalooza has arrived in Springfield!  Yes, the biggest music fest to hit our pocket-sized Springfields since the Singing Stones is live and rocking on our devices!  The latest event in TSTO has us feeling the beat as we experience different genres of music…with a little Weird Al thrown in the mix!

This Event is broken up into 3 Acts, with each Acts containing part of the story.  To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act.  Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event.  For the first Act, Rock, you’re tasked with collecting Cuffs () to unlock each prize!

The First Rock Prize awarded at 4,800 is the Pig Balloon, because nothing says rock like an inflatable pig…

So let’s take a closer look at this first prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…

Once you’ve collected 4,800 you’ll automatically be awarded the balloon and you’ll see this message popup:

And you’ll have the option to place the balloon in your Springfield or store it in your inventory for later.  Remember if you store it you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it.

It does come with a little bit of dialogue when placed…

Homer: Hey, it’s an inflatable concert pig, just like at Hullabalooza.
Lisa: It’s a symbol of the corporate greed of the record companies.
Homer: Except, now all the greedy record companies are out of business.
Bart: So now it just means “Caution: a fat man may try to sing”.

That’s it.  Just place and move on…

And here are the quick details:

Size: 1×1
Earns: Nada for now.  Just a decoration..but who knows.  I’m sure one day EA will bring it back as a premium item and throw a bonus % on it…
Vanity +100
Other Info: Can be placed on the grass/pavement/beach/boardwalk/dirt/pier.  Once you’ve unlocked as a prize you’ll be able to craft more via the crafting menu for 40

And there you have it, the details behind the Pig Balloon, the first Homerpalooza prize!

What’s Next?

ico_stor_single_freelandtokenTechnically the Free Land Tile and a new venue unlocked is next….awarded at 11,100 , but since that’s not a tangible gift for Springfield (just a free land space & unlocking the Simpson House for Jam Sessions.  And a real quick note about the Jam Venue…it’s not a physical item for Springfield.  This just unlocks your ability to hold Jam Sessions on the Simpsons House. I know some of you are still confused on this.)
the next prize we’ll cover is…

Rock Camp Thread Shed- Awarded at 18,800.  This will be the next prize we break down in the prize guide post.

What are your thoughts on the balloon? Safe to assume you’ve unlocked it by now?  Where have you placed it in your Springfield? Did you craft extra?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. MydadlookslikeFlanders

    Pink Floyd’s “Animals” album rocks and the story about how the giant pig floated away/escaped at the photo shoot for the album cover and the band fled is glorious. The floating porker was spotted by aircraft even and surely confused the heck out of them. lol. The piggy was later recovered from a farmers field.

  2. The pig could also be an illusion to the Pink Floyd THE WALL concerts. There were pigs flying in those, too.

  3. Pig Balloon

    You know I put mine over the Burns Nuclear Plant 😅🐖💨

  4. I love this decoration because of Pink Floyd.

  5. I like that pig even if I still don’t see the connection to the music festival. Right now, I have two floating by the rock stage, and I will probably craft a couple more. Basically, pigs go with anything… 😉

  6. Raise your hand if you put yours over the power plant.

  7. Has anyone else’s “more rock” bonuts questiline disappeared since getting the final prize?

    • I have the last prize and am still collecting bonuts. I haven’t finished Peter’s quest line, tho…I think I’ll wait to complete it until I know if it turns off the bonuts.

      • I have to finished Peter’s questline and my Bonuts are still ongoing.

        I like that I actually have a few too many people for the main source of income as this lets me finish the questioned as they come. Rather than having a mitt full of them at the end and can’t keep them sorted on what each story is doing.

      • I stopped at part 4 of Peter’s quest line but thankfully the bonut task has now reappeared! *panic over*

  8. Love the challenge!

  9. So not sure what is going on, but I am now getting the bonuts as if I have finished the quest line, but I am only up to the fourth price (IE got Delacourt yesterday). Anyone else seeing this?

  10. Nice to have Algie in the game I suppose

  11. Peter Frampton would be proud

  12. Has anyone designed there Rock stage like it is the main source of income

    • I have the space ready with a crowd waiting for the next two stages

      • Love those crowds! I think they’re one of the best craftables we’ve ever had. Just wish the rude crowd wasn’t so much more expensive than the regular one….I like to mix them up together.

  13. Alissa, do you know if additional crafting items will be introduced in Act 2, or is this all of it? I have almost everything, so I’m not sure if I should try to finish all the items by the end of Act 1, or do they continue to the end of the event?

  14. A little fun with a few pig balloons. 🐖🐖🐖
