Festifools

 

continued

Is there an etiquette for bystanders? Tucker reluctantly confesses that he wishes there was a little less audience participation. "The first year we were so happy to get encouragement. [Last year] that worked so well, uh-well, it worked too well. Everyone was in the street, everyone had a camera."

The first weekend of April might be a pretty good weather bet in some climes, but in Michigan it's about as reliable as any of the other months with an "r" in them. Amazingly, the weather for the first two FestiFools was uncharacteristically balmy-- and Tucker modestly credits that as much as anything else for the success of FestiFools.

This article has been revised since its publication in the April 2009 Ann Arbor Observer. A no-longer-accurate speculation about the event's future was deleted, the size of the puppets was corrected, and credit was added for U-M art prof Nick Tobier.    (end of article)
