FoolMoon 2012

The fools are back in town! This was the scene Friday night at the second annual FoolMoon event on Washington Street in downtown Ann Arbor. The moonlight event — held for the first time last year as a new sort of prelude to the long-standing FestiFools parade in Ann Arbor — features large processions of handmade illuminated sculptures (a.k.a. "luminaries") carried by dancing teams of merrymakers. As the luminaries danced above the crowded street party, their shadows could be seen on the side of a nearby building where a movie was being projected. It was all very foolish and good times were had by all. Here are some of my favorite luminaries of the night. Looking forward to FestiFools at 4 p.m. Sunday! Go here for deets.
