FestiFools-18

There’s no better way to shake off the wintertime blues than getting a little “foolish” during the 7th annual FestiFools celebration. This rite of spring allows the public to express themselves by throwing on funky garb and parading imaginative sculptures created over the past months down the streets of A2. Get into the spirit early with FoolMoon on Friday night from 7pm-12am, when hand-made, illuminated sculptures carried by enthusiastic teams dance down Washington and Ashley Streets. There’ll be candlelit treats, shadow puppet performances, live music from Theo Katzman and Dan Henig and more. Then don’t miss the FestiFools’ parade on Saturday down Main St. in Downtown A2! Thousands of “fools “ turn out to frolic with irreverent papier-mache puppets. 4-5pm. Downtown Ann Arbor. www.festifools.com—JG
