FoolMoon is the Friday night kick-off to a weekend of wonder-foolishness in Ann Arbor! During FoolMoon, the skyline will be filled with luminaries, interactive instillations, laser shows, DJs raised into the air, live dance performances, light up hula hoops and so many more de-LIGHT-fool surprises. Participants are encouraged to “make stuff” beforehand and join one of the luminary processions. 

While FoolMoon is moving to Kerrytown this year, the FestiFools parade with giant puppets on Sunday, April 7th, will remain downtown on Main Street. Details for both events and luminary workshops available at www.WonderFoolProductions.org.
