The 20th Anniversary celebrations were an event marking 20 years of RuneScape involving balloon drops on 4 January 2021, the reactivation of the RS Anniversary cake, and the introduction of the Grand Party.

Balloons about to drop

Every 30 minutes purple, silver, and yellow balloons dropped near all lodestones, except in Prifddinas. The following message occurred two minutes before the balloon drop in the player's chatbox: Party Pete is going to drop balloons near all of the lodestones (except Prifddinas), in two minutes, as part of the 20th Anniversary celebrations. After this message a confetti effect was seen around the affected lodestones until the balloons dropped.

Players could burst up to 50 balloons with each burst balloon rewarding the player with an item. All unburst balloons disappeared after one minute of being on the ground.

Heralds could be seen promoting the balloon drops.

Unlike most of the celebrations, the balloon drops started from 4 January 00:00 GMT, whereas the Grand Party was added with the game update later in the day. The balloon drops and heralds only remained for the 4 January 2021.
