“Foo(L)d” is the theme for the FoolMoon, a Luminary Spectacle of Light and Laughter to performing right in front of Grizzly Peak on Washington Street. Think luminous orbs of fantastically oversized glowing “Foo(L)d” luminary sculptures dancing alongside lusciously large futuristic “Mouths” as they cavort between hundreds of glowing “MoonPops” of every size and color.
