Ann Arbor’s FoolMoon creative light-up arts festival returns to town this year

FoolMoon’s annual public art and lighting event in Ann Arbor had to turn into an online experience last year, shortly after the pandemic began. This year it will be “reinvented” with an outdoor component to support local businesses with the theme “Shine Your Light A2”.

Lisa Barry talks to event manager Jennifer Goulet about what’s planned for this year’s FoolMoon event.

It’s time to wipe those lights down, make crazy costumes, light your masks, dress the dog, turn on the Christmas lights, and do your magic! This year’s theme–Shine your light A2– to confirm that the COMMUNITY shines brightest together, especially in difficult times.
