This is my evening out on the town for the 3rd annual Nuit Blanche 2008. The photos below were taken between 7pm on Saturday, October 4th to 5:20am, Sunday Oct. 5th. The event was supposed to last till 7 in the morning, but both the people and most art installations packed up sometime time just before 5am…Kind of a shame. I’ve been staying up till dawn since the very first Nuit Blanche event in Toronto and its been like that every year. What I’d like to see for future NB’s is the excitment continue on till the later hours of the morning. The energy fizzles out quite abruptly. I suppose the big change for this year’s event was the spreading out of the art installations. I think that alone hat made it a bit harder to get around and see everything. I myself made it to all the zones, but at times I did think that i’d never make it through to all the 3 zones.
