Nuit Blanche 2014 in pictures…

So you’ve probably guessed by now that I am a huge fan of street festivals and public art! And Nuit Blanche is one of my favourite festivals to check out every year!

I love the city at night anyway, but add in an outdoor festival and it’s a great way to while away an evening. Whether you fully understand everything you’re seeing or not, it’s a great atmosphere of friends exploring the city and discovering interesting and unique sights along the way. And it’s fantastic to see so many people out and participating in it!

Here are some of the installations we experienced this year:
