Good morning!

FoolMoon returned to downtown Ann Arbor on Friday, and though it was different than in years past (think: parade followed by glow-in-the-dark dance party) it was still magical. Each year, the event encourages community collaboration and holds luminary-making workshops for residents of all ages.

This year, it hosted a blend of in-person and virtual events. Its first-ever Stroll + Roll spanned Kerrytown, the Main Street and State Street districts and featured artist installations, window paintings by the Brush Monkeys and special displays and offers by participating businesses.

Sarah captured the colorful community event (photos below).

Have a great rest of the week.
