FoolMoon and FestiFools parades hit Ann Arbor this weekend

Posted By on Fri, Apr 10, 2015 at 10:49 AM


Ann Arbor's streets will turn into a psychedelic procession with a pair of street parades, effectively kicking off the city's festival season.

The 5th annual FoolMoon starts Friday at dusk — around 8 p.m. — featuring illuminated sculptures and costumes. There's three starting routes this year (at the Farmers' Market at Kerrytown, the University of Michigan Museum of Art, and Slauson Middle School — view the routes here), which all converge at Washington Street and Ashley Street. There you'll find illuminated hula-hooping, video projections, outdoor art installations, shadow puppets, musical entertainment provided by sister DJs Meryl and Leah Waldo, and more. Festivities last until midnight.



Sunday's event, the 9th annual FestiFools, is more of a flashmob-type event lasting between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. involving paper-mâché puppets built by U-M art students. More information is available at the FestiFools official site.
