Be foolish

. June 6, 2012.

When U of M art professor Mark Tucker traveled to Italy to learn carta pesta (papier-mache), he was intrigued and inspired by the massive, colorful and humorous floats made by the Italian craftsmen and knew he had to incorporate the style back in Ann Arbor. And what better day to pair carta pesta with than April Fools? On April 1, the street celebration FoolMoon will be held from dusk to midnight, with moonlight processions of hand-made lanterns on W. Washington Street, as well as activities and music throughout the downtown area. Also, Festifools, a parade on Main Street between Washington and William, exhibits colorful and unique works of carta pesta from 4-5pm on April 3. www.festifools.org
