Nuit Blanche 2013

Toronto has survived another round of the Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2013, although another casualty did occur during the night, and an incredible number of citizens wandered the streets for all hours of the night to catch the many videos, installations and performances that anyone would be hard pressed to see in only one night. The majority of exhibitions were in the downtown core - around the Eaton Centre, Nathan Phillips Square and on Yonge, University Streets and King Street. You could find some events on Queen Street West but nothing much in the Distillery District, Liberty Village or anywhere else. The night seems to be consolidating which brings so many people into a relatively small area. We started just before seven and Fresh Joe and myself used bikes to get around the city and it was about 2:30 am when we packed it in and headed home.
