FestiFools 2013 was awesome — and, lasting just 60 minutes, also a blur. The weather was perfect, the amassed Fools were pumped and giddy, smiling faces abounded, music filled the street… (Also, every child under 12 got a free pony!)

I was delighted to see so many friends and neighbors and folks-who-look-really-familiar-but-I-haven’t-officially-met-yet and folks-who-don’t-look-really-familiar-but-I-hope-to-meet-soon filling Main St. and embracing this unique and special Ann Arbor tradition. You guys rock! To show your support for FoolMoon and FestiFools, please make a donation.

Roll film…

FestiFools 2013 | I’m gonna “Huff” and puff and blow this horn all over Main St. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.). Props to Mulugeta Mekonnen, Ross Huff, and Asim Khan (and Brennan Andes, not shown) for the swingin’ live music!

FestiFools 2013 | Spontaneous Art brought a giant piñata to the Street Party. After a full hour or flailing near-misses, Trevor Stone finally landed a solid shot. If you’d been expecting a bunch of candy to come falling out, then you perhaps experienced a bit of a rude shock. (If, on the other hand, you’d been expecting piñata organs and blood vessels to fall out, then for you it was “same old, same old.”)

You can’t see it all when you’re there. But you can if you see Myra’s pix. Wow! How sweet it is!
