Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2011 - Should Be a Lot of Fun.

It's that time of year in Toronto again. Nuit Blanche will soon be upon us. This year it will be bigger and better than ever. It seems to be one of those events that captures people's imaginations and grows in stature every year.

Nuit Blanche is an all night affair that occurs one night a year. Downtown Toronto is transformed into an all night art show. The lights are so bright in certain corners that it seems almost like mid-day (hence the name nuit blanche).

There will be all kinds of performers, ranging from the types who should probably be locked up in an asylum to some very clever people who put together interesting shows and displays. In any case, there will probably be almost a million people wandering around, so there's no need to be worried about being trapped in some dark corner by a man in make-up wearing tights, juggling live animals while blowing Lithuanian marching songs on a didgeridoo. It's really just about a whole group of people having fun and being amused.

The activities start at 6.59 P.M. on October 1, and will go straight through until dawn. I'm probably not going to be one of those people who are still wandering around when the sun comes up. I do however, plan to take it all in for a few hours. Stay tuned for some pictures next week, or better yet, come down to Toronto and experience it for yourself and post your own pictures. I'm sure you'll be able to get some good ones.
