It’s Springtime in Pun. The weather is temperate across most of the island with seasonal precipitation in the form of the Claude Rains.

April 4 is Doris Day in Pun, a national holiday honoring the birthdate of Doris O’Pun, a revolutionary leader during the rebellion of 1800, which opened the door to constitutional government in Pun. Check with city tourist bureaus for information on local celebration events.

On April 7, Shadowland Theme Park opens just south of Fort Knight in Central Pun. At Shadowland, you can hearken back to the days of yore as they were in Pun’s Dark Ages (the Age of Knights). Visitors to this medieval village can find adventure on thrill rides such as the “Dragontrain” roller coaster, frolic on a typical village common in the “Plague Ground,” watch simulated tortures and beheadings at “Rack and Roll at the Palace,” or get a bite to eat at “Serf’s Sup.”

April 14 -20 on the Bikini Islands finds the Bum’s Rush Festival in full swing. The highlight is the Kiester Parade on April 19.

April 22 marks the Punderground Festival in the town of Coopdyville, but we advise that you skip this event. Back in the 1920s, the street level was raised around the Courthouse Square in the downtown area. The stores on two adjoining streets, Investigation Alley and Contempt Avenue, were buried underground. In the 1980s, these underground shops were opened up by entrepreneurs and the Punderground was born. It was designed to be home to trendy shops, restaurants and taverns but now sports a notorious reputation for high prices and outright fraud. Most of the shops are under Investigation and the rest are beneath Contempt. In addition, part of the city’s old sewer system has been turned into a water park called Sewerslide. If you do choose to attend, you’ll find the most reputable shops to be Peter’s Cellars (a wine shop), Subs Terranean (featuring healthfood sandwiches), Buried Treasures (antiques), and The Under Warehouse (lingerie).
