When: Fri., April 7, 7 p.m. and Sun., April 9, 4 p.m. 2017
Ann Arbor's streets will turn into a psychedelic procession with a pair of street parades, effectively kicking off the city's festival season. FoolMoon starts Friday at dusk — around 8 p.m. — featuring illuminated sculptures and costumes. 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, FestiFools, is more of a flashmob-type event lasting between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. involving paper-mâché puppets built by University of Michigan art students.
