ANN ARBOR, Mich.On Oct. 25, from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., hundreds of artists and YpsiGLOW enthusiasts will gather together on North Washington Street in downtown Ypsilanti.

With luminaries, glow sticks, performances, light-up costumes, video projections and more, artists, performers, families, friends and other community members will take to the streets in the downtown district to show off the vibrancy of the city.

A show-stopping display of community unity, the annual event was created in 2016 to make a cultural and economic impact on the Ypsilanti downtown area, as well as demonstrate the creativity and collaboration of those living in the area.

Created by Wonderfool Productions, the YpsiGLOW joins the FestiFools and FOOLmoon parades as a community procession highlighting the area's imaginative personality.
