‘Fool’ moon, Mozart, and arts and crafts is what’s happening this weekend

Check out this action-packed schedule of events happening around the D

The weekend is quickly approaching and there is plenty of stuff to do around Detroit.

We start with something that will have Ann Arbor shining bright, and it is called “FoolMoon”. The festival is all about dressing up and lighting luminaries, and this year’s theme is “Alice in WonderFools”. The light-filled art and costumes will be at the Kerrytown, Mainstreet, and State Street districts. You can also take part in the “FoolMoon Stroll and Roll” at dusk Friday by meeting at N. University Ave. and S. State St.

Also this weekend, you can go on a musical journey with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. “Mozart’s Magnificent Voyage” is a live theatrical production that will fill Orchestra Hall this Saturday. Featuring 23 excerpts of Mozart’s Music, the musical takes you through his childhood. The show is Saturday at 11:00 a.m., and you can get tickets on the DSO’s website.

There is also an art exhibit in Hamtramck that is doubling as a fundraiser for Ukraine. 25 artists have donated more than 75 pieces of art to the exhibit at the Oloman Café, and proceeds will go toward relief efforts. The fundraiser runs through April 13th.

First Friday’s are back in Ypsilanti, where you can check out a variety of art and creative workshops. There will also be live music and shopping across the city with more than a dozen different businesses taking part.

Another arts and crafts fest is taking place in Troy where they are celebrating the season with their “Spring Fest”. Families can take part in art workshops, a petting zoo, and try out their skills on bounce houses. This event will be happening on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., but you must register in advance.
