8th Annual FestiFools


Mar 01, 2013 Bookmark and Share

Since 2007, students from the University of Michigan’s Lloyd Hall Scholars Program’s Art in Public Spaces course have led the creation of FestiFools, a large-scale, exuberant, outdoor community art spectacle featuring a 3-ring circus of unique dancing gigantic puppets and general Foolish hijinks. This year FestiFools is spreading its arms wide open to invite everyone in the community to get involved. FestiFools organizers wish to make this a true community experience by crowdsourcing the festivities this year. Despite it being this year’s theme, organizers don’t think it’s “WishFool Thinking” to encourage people of all ages to commit to bringing their own hand-made puppets, goofy costumes, wacky hair-do’s, out-of-vogue instruments, and general Foolish merriment to Main Street for Ann Arbor’s 8th annual—not to be missed—FestiFools spectacular! (All excited puppet animators/dancers/musicians and merrymakers are asked to meet in the parking lot adjacent to Palio restaurant at 3pm on April 6th.)
