WonderFool Productions, the producers of FestiFools and FoolMoon in Ann Arbor, is teaming up with the Ypsilanti community for the 4th annual ypsiGLOW —a light-filled, GLOWing celebration in Downtown Ypsilanti filled with creative window installations, interactive creations, street performances, luminaries, GLOWing costumes, music, dancing and more.

ypsiGLOW is a free, family-friendly event. People of all ages are invited to join the celebration!

Friday, October 25, 2019 • 7-9:30 pm N. Washington Street (between Pearl Street and Michigan Avenue)

Once the sun sets, Ypsi is ready to GLOW!  Halloween costumes, luminaries, and anything that GLOWs bright are all welcomed and encouraged.

People of all ages are invited to create their own GLOW for the main event at any one of the free art making workshops led by local artists in Ypsilanti on weekends starting September 28, 2019.  No experience or supplies required, just bring your imagination!
