Sam's hat is an item that could be obtained by popping balloons that appeared around Sam. It was originally obtainable in 2014 during the Independence Day Celebration. Approximately every hour, balloons would spawn around the festival area in a similar fashion to the Party Room. Popping the balloons had the chance of providing the event-exclusive Sam's hat, which would automatically be placed in the player's inventory.
If not already obtained in 2014, it could be obtained by balloon-popping when Sam appeared in the Lumbridge Crater on 3 July and 4 July 2015 during the Summer Beach Party, and again during the 4th of July celebrations west of Varrock in 2016, 2019, and 2020.
This item can be stored in the toy box at the costume room of a player-owned house.
- The hat and its examine text is a reference Uncle Sam, a personification of the United States government.
