  •  

    It’s time to dust off those luminaries, get busy making crazy costumes, light up your masks, dress up the dog, turn on the holiday lights, and make FoolMoon magic!  This year’s theme–Shine Your Light A2–affirms that our commUNITY shines brightest together, especially when times are tough.

    In keeping with tradition, community artmaking begins in March, with online + at home projects, workshops, and camps for kids of all ages.  An array of light-filled, surprising + socially distanced art will unfold across downtown Ann Arbor and culminate on Friday, April 9.  Make plans to FoolMoon Stroll + Roll to check out the art + support our local businesses along the way.

    Join the FoolMoon CommUNITY Facebook group—our new virtual place to unite our creative superpowers, connect with fellow luminarians + illuminauts, make + share FoolMoon creations, get the scoop, and share some smiles.
