Fall Festival is one of the four Grand Galas. Each year, the Fall Festival begins in mid-September and ends on the final day of October.
Fall Festival 2014
The 2014 Fall Festival began with Bailey's announcement on 22 September:
Autumn is upon us! The air is crisp, the leaves are red, and Habitica is feeling spooky. Come celebrate the Fall Festival with us... if you dare!
The holiday event brought several additions to HabitRPG, including festive equipment and unique food drops.
NPC Costume Changes
To celebrate the new season, all the NPCs donned their spookiest Fall apparel.
On Halloween (10/31/2014), the NPCs turned into monsters for one day.
Food drops were converted to candy for the Fall Festival. The candy had the same function as food; feed these to your pet to get it to turn into a mount!
|Hatching Potions||Candy Preference|
|Skeleton||Bare Bones Candy|
|Cotton Candy Pink||Sour Pink Candy|
|Cotton Candy Blue||Sour Blue Candy|
Spooky Sparkles were purchasable during the Fall Festival in the Market, for 15 gold. When used, they turn your friends into a floating blanket with eyes.
After you have purchased them and can see them in your Inventory, click the item. Your mouse cursor will have a '+' in the right corner. Then click on an avatar in your party or on your own avatar.
You could purchase as many Spooky Sparkles as you wanted while the Fall Festival was active. Unused ones stay in your Inventory after Fall Festival ends, so you can save them for future use.
If you have Spooky Sparkles cast on you, you will receive the "Alarming Friends" achievement. You will also gain an Opaque Potion reward which you can redeem for 5 gold to cancel the effects of the Spooky Sparkles. The Opaque Potion works immediately on you when redeemed and it cannot be used for someone else.
Even if you don't use an Opaque Potion, the ghost effect wears off after your next Cron.

Mystery Item and Seasonal Avatar Customizations
The September Mystery Item, the Autumn Strider set, had a fall forest theme.
Starting with the Fall Festival, certain avatar customization options will be made available on a seasonal basis. For the Fall Festival, these are the Supernatural Skins and Haunted Hair Colors. They are based on the Limited Edition skins and hairstyles from the Trick or Treat event of 2013, but have been altered somewhat to preserve the uniqueness of the original versions. Seasonal Edition items are marked as such, and will not be available until the following year once the season ends.
The backgrounds released within October had a Halloween theme (Graveyard, Haunted House, Pumpkin Patch).
The quests released during the Fall Festival were not explicitly part of the Festival, however they were chosen for their spooky theme:
- The Icy Arachnid, a pet quest
- The Moonstone Chain, a collection quest
