I wouldn't worry, this is earlier than normal and we all don't have the update so it's not like it's something wrong with each of our devices individually. It will eventually be released.

Can someone clarify what optional event means?

Fron description, not a re-run, which you don't get if already completed in your gsme.

I am so excited about the day spa event. I have wanted a re-run of that event since I started playing the game some time in April 2017. This makes waiting for the update so worthwhile.

I thought the event was supposed to begin on the 16th. It just began in my game.

I was so excited when they said that iOS devices could experience AR, until I realized that my device has an A7 chip and I need at least an A9 chip to use AR 😔. Here is hoping that they will make it available for my device in the near future

Last time they used that phrase it meant that it still wouldn't show if you've already completed it and if you haven't completed it yet you would get a pop up asking if you wanted to participate in it. It's not really any different than other re-run events except for the pop up to ask if you want to do it.

The dates are FM's time zone in Australia. It's the 16th already there. The first events in any update usually start immediately upon updating. But most of the time you can delay updating for a couple of days and still get the full allotted time.
