A lovely day for a foolish parade. We were out and got some choice standing places in the springtime sunshine, and when the parade got to be too much for the youngest of the party, we went out for hot chocolate and a muffin.
This photo gives some idea of the fun. I didn't get a picture of my favorite puppet, which was a camera complete with "flash". This was definitely a time to get photos with as much resolution as you can.
You can see many more photos of the event on the Facebook page for the 2013 Festifools event, and I'm sure as I find more I'll share more.

Bring your luminary (or kazoo / chicken suit / saxophone / what have you) to one of our three “Constellation Stations” (aka starting points), and join fellow frolickers for the Foolish stroll to W. Washington Street. We will begin gathering around 7:45pm, and the processionals will set off at 8:15pm.
The starting points on the map below: U of Michigan Museum of Art on State Street, Farmers Market in Kerrytown, and Slauson Middle School on West Washington St.
Edward Vielmetti will see you on the street.

Subject: Facebook introduces `enemies list' feature
PALO ALTO, CA — Facebook today announced availability of a new feature, the
enemies list. "This is the single most requested feature from our customer
base, and we always respond to our customers," said company spokesman Ronald
Ziegler. "It's based on the old proverb, 'The enemy of my enemy is my
friend'," he added. "When two people add the same third party to their
enemies lists, they automatically become Facebook friends." In response to
a question, Ziegler said there is no corresponding function to automatically
add the friends of enemies to a user's enemies list.
