Feeling foolish?

March is almost over, which meas it's almost time for two of my favorite events: FoolMoon and FestiFools. FoolMoon is tomorrow. For FoolMoon, there will be three luminary processionals marching to Washington between Liberty and Ashley. The processionals start at 8 pm at the U of M art Museum, Slauson Middle School and the Farmers Market. If you haven't made your luminary yet, grab some coat hangers and that old headlamp you've got sitting around and make one. Alternately, just show up. FoolMoon is super awesome.

A FoolMoon luminary from last year. Pretty freaking sweet.

FestiFools is this Sunday from 4 to 5 pm on Main Street. Like FoolMoon, it features a parade. Unlike FoolMoon, there will be no luminaries. In place of luminaries, people will be marching with huge freaking puppets:

These two events are really really really awesome. They are a great chance for Ann Arbor's various cliques to mingle together. You should totally go to both of them. You will not regret it.
