Nuit Blanche Toronto 2018

On this special night the city comes alive with thousands of people seeking out the art of Nuit Blanche. Rest early because starting at 7pm on Saturday, September 29 and continuing throughout the night until 7am on Sunday, September 30... so Less Sleep, More Art. In Sight at the Drake Commissary is at top.

The sleepless night features works spread out over the city so you will have decide if you will try to see as many as possible, or concentrate your adventure to a specific location. Major event centres for Nuit are at Nathan Phillips Square, Yonge Dundas Square and at the Scarborough Town Centre. Also at City Hall will be the Hendrick's Gin hot air balloon.

And the anti-nuit blanche events continue with the les rules des refuses:
Last minute but worth the wait. The rave is happening in the bowl at trinity bellwood and around midnight is flame breathing.

My lite-bike is ready to go (see photo at top), so keep an eye out for me on the streets of Toronto and say hi if you see me. Thanks to everyone that gave my bike a shout out - it was another hit at this year's nuit. I traveled quite a bit on the bike and saw quite a few installations, trying to keep out of the Queen and Bay area due to the ginormous crowds that filled the streets until the wee hours of the morning. A light rain started falling around 4:30am and the crowds quickly dwindled.
