Nuit Blanche

Having an assignment regarding this one night event in the city of Toronto, it gave me the opportunity to experience it first hand. Made my way downtown around 12:30am to meet up with the best friend who was volunteering at one of the stations near Dufferin. The night was filled with drunk people who were high all over the streets. But it is something totally different to see so many people jam the streets of Toronto at night.

Our plan was simple: Start at Queen and University, then make our way west to Spadina, north on Dundas, east on Yonge, south to Queen. On route, there were some art displays along Queen St. Made our way inside the Art Gallery of Ontario where it appeared as if a sweatshop was present lol then towards Dundas Square for the festivities. Into the Eaton Centre for a display where the Swarovski Christmas tree usually is. Then outside into old City Hall, a building I had never been in, and then to the City Hall where they had a end of the world exhibit. Had to actually line up for it too. It was interesting to say the least. By the end of it all, we were exhausted and didn't get back til 4:30.
