2022 ypsiGLOW Returns to Downtown Ypsilanti

Spread the love

ypsiGLOW is back for its 7th annual event with a Where the Wild Things Glow theme.

ypsiGLOW is an annual Halloween art and light show in Downtown Ypsilanti produced by WonderFool – the same group that produces Ann Arbor’s FestiFools and FoolMoon each April. The celebration returns to its traditional Washington Street location. The previous two years it had expanded across Ypsilanti and with virtual participation options to allow for at home participation.
