WonderFool has launched FOOLMoon Reimagined, a Facebook group where creative individuals from Ann Arbor and around the world can join, share their creations and offer support to one another during the COVID-19 crisis.

“In this whirlwind of change, we’re realizing what’s really important in our lives and in our communities. Each other,” WonderFool stated in a press release announcing the group.

Over 1000 members have already signed up to post photos and videos of their masks, painted faces, videos and other works, many of which in the glowing, colorful style that has become FestiFOOLS’ trademark.

In addition, WonderFool has announced that the FOOLMoon event scheduled for April 3 will now take place online via the Facebook page, with further details being announced in the coming days.

“Dust off your luminary, check your batteries, put on a crazy costume, and get ready to make some magic together!” the press release said.

This year’s FestiFOOLS event was planned to be themed “Fossil FOOLS” in honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.
