Popular Sanrio character My Melody will be celebrating her 40th anniversary this year. To commemorate the milestone, the Sanrio Puroland amusement park in Tama, Tokyo is holding a special My Melody event.

The event, titled “My Melody 40th Anniversary Fair: Omoiyari to You”, is being held on the 4th floor of Puroland. Featured areas of the fair include the My Melody Room, decorated with My Melody furniture and merchandise, and the My Melody Anniversary Shop, which sells exclusive merchandise and souvenirs, including some of the furniture items displayed in the My Melody Room.

The event also includes a photo spot based on My Melody’s hometown forest of Mary Land, as well as the My Melody Dream Cafe, which sells a variety of foods and drinks based on the character. A costumed My Melody will also be making appearances most days of the fair, providing numerous opportunities for fans and visitors to have their picture taken with her.

A special “Omoiyari to You” parade has also been running since January 16th. The first parade since Puroland’s opening to feature a main character other than Hello Kitty, the My Melody-led parade also features Kiki and Lala, the Little Twin Stars, who were introduced the same year as My Melody. Hello Kitty, Dear Daniel, and other Sanrio characters are also participating in the parade, and acrobatic performances and a light show contribute to the party-like atmosphere.

In addition, Puroland is offering a special discount for My Melody fans through May 6th. Guests who dress entirely in My Melody’s signature colors of pink and white can purchase discounted admission tickets to the amusement park.

The event will run until August 31st.
