On the 14th of August in past years of Club Penguin’s running operations there have been updates only on one year so far, 2009. On August 14, 2009 there was a new pin and the launch of the party for that month, the Festival of Flight, a favourite of many players that has not returned since.
First off, the new pin was the Sand Castle Pin. You could find it at the Mine. This was Club Penguin’s 96th pin overall pin and the third pin to be hidden in this room.
The Festival of Flight was a project that was led by Gary the Gadget Guy. The windows in the underground pool room had to be replaced, and if they were to be replaced then the underground would be flooded. To avoid flooding, Gary made the entire island float in the sky! At the Festival of Flight you could ride a hot air balloon to the Tallest Mountain, where members could pick up a free Jet Pack item. All players could pick up the Green Propeller Cap at the Plaza. Gary was waddling around the airborne island too so if you met him you could get his free giveaway background.
