2014 event[edit | edit source]
The event ran between 4 July and 6 July 2014, and took place west of the Cooks' Guild in Varrock. The event area contained four large feast tables, three barbeques which provided 15% extra Cooking experience when cooked on, and a bank chest. Two guards guarded the area, and Sam the wandering merchant ran a small toy store that offered the same stock as Diango's Toy Store, as well as the event-exclusive item known as Liber tea.
Balloon drop[edit | edit source]
Every 45 minutes, a balloon drop with blue, red and white party balloons occurred in a similar fashion to the Falador Party Room. Popping them had the chance of providing the event-exclusive Sam's hat. The balloon drops were not synchronised across multiple worlds, and balloons could only be popped if you had a free inventory space.
From 2019 onward, only the Sam's hat appears as a drop.
2015 event[edit | edit source]
Although less grand then 2014, Sam and his stall returned in 2015 with a new character model to the Summer Beach Party in Lumbridge Crater. He could be found next to the bank chest by the sandcastles between 3 July and 4 July 2015. The balloon drop from the previous year returned.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Sam's hat appeared in the toy box interface in a player's house several days before the release of the event in 2014.
- If you attempted to enter the 2016 or the 2019 event area with a familiar or a pet, you would be forced out with a message saying: "You cannot enter this area with a familiar/pet. You must leave this area and dismiss your familiar if you wish to enter."
