Karafuru announced its next IRL Carnival via tweet early this morning.
The three-day event will be held in conjunction with DesignerCon which takes place at the Anaheim Convention Center in Los Angeles, California.
The event will take place starting on Friday, Nov. 18 but those looking for free general admission tickets will only have until Friday, Nov. 11 to sign up for the Karafuru giveaway.
In addition to tickets to DesignerCon, the 300 winners will be allowlisted for an upcoming phygital collection from DesignerCon. Only those who hold a Karafuru NFT are eligible to participate.
The previous Karafuru Carnival was held in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Karafuru announced via a tweet at 5:24 a.m. ET this morning that NFT holders should check their wallets.
The airdrop, which is under Furu Surprise on OpenSea, looks like a mystery box. There are two small, glowing eyes peeking out of an opening in the top of the box.
Each NFT is called "Surprise, Surprise" and has a single trait: Surprise. Surprising, indeed.
The NFT collection has done more than eight ETH in total volume since it went live and the current floor price is 0.17 ETH.
With Ethereum being down more than 35 percent over the last week, low-entry-cost NFTs are once again seeing a day filled with green with users taking advantage of the cheaper USD price of NFTs.
Below is a list of NFT collections under 1.0 ETH that has seen an increase in floor price of at least 20 percent over the last 24 hours according to the Lucky Trader Project Rankings.

After a day filled with panic that saw Ethereum almost hit $1000 for the first time in more than a year and the floor of NFT collections cascading downwards, support looks to have been found for the time being.
Many collections below 1.0 ETH have seen a run today with panic looking to have subsided momentarily.

Karafuru is partnering with Studio Shoh Enterprise, an animation studio with production experience with movies like "Boss Baby: Back in Business" and "Mini Bow Toons," to help build out the Karafuru IP.
The animation studio is led by director Oh Seung-Hyun, who worked on the titles "Avatar: The Last Airbender" and "The Boondocks."
"You can expect a clear cut, consistent and in-depth storyline of Karafuru as an IP, and a lore expansion for each and every one of these 12 colorful characters that resides in the Playground," the project said in a Discord message Wednesday.
The Karafuru team announced via Discord that a recent airdrop circulating holders' NFT wallets is a scam.
The NFT appears to be a mint opportunity for an upcoming NFT project called Bully Apes. But Karafuru did not send it out.
"Some of you have seen an airdrop in your wallets, and it is a scam NFT," little.HED wrote on Discord. "Please do not interact with it and be careful."
The team also said they will never do a stealth launch and will never DM you.
The Dutch Auction of the Karafuru Gachapon collection sold out 4,000 NFTs at 0.475 ETH on Tuesday. 6,000 WL wallets will be able to mint at a price of 0.3325 ETH, starting at 10 p.m. ET on Tuesday evening. The remaining 5,555 will be for holders of the genesis Karafuru collection.
