I did not attend Nuit Blanche with kids but with two girlfriends. We went from 10 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. and had a ball. The weather was amazing.
We loved the Clothesline Canopy strung with 5,000 pairs of socks!
What I learned about the Après Nuit:
The 5,000 pairs of gorgeous socks we saw today will be donated to shelters! It's so cool!
I also learned that six projects will remain after Nuit Blanche.
The big Project #1 with 3,100 bikes by Ai Weiwei (a special exhibition of this artist's work is still at the AGO until October 27) will remain in Nathan Phillips Square until October 27.
Five more projects will be there until October 14: the neon writing of Project #3 also in Nathan Phillips Square; the wonderful Project # 37 made of a mountain of chairs in front of Metropolitan Church; Project #50, The Tanks in David Pecaut Square (which I really wanted to see but didn't have the chance); Project #7, Plastic Bags in Bell Trinity Square and Project #26 on Adelaide outside of Scotia Plaza (a video installation featuring singer John Kelly singing a mesmerizing Baroque song).
