I finally have something worthwhile to blog about!!
So last night I went to Nuit Blanche, which is a very popular art festival in Toronto! I believe it starts at 6 and goes until the sun comes up. It was my first year going, so I didn't really know what to expect. I also heard that it originated in Paris, France which is kinda neat.
We arrived at around 6pm and I snapped a picture as we were walking to dinner.
It was rather crazy... I've never seen so many people in one place before... even at conventions lol! There were many street performers. I believe I took this photo as a man was juggling chainsaws! So dangerous... but he turned out alright. How would you even practice that?!
There were so many exhibits and pieces that I couldn't possibly have included them all My camera also started running out of battery power so I'm afraid I had to pick and choose.. They were all quite wonderful though!
There was one in particular that blew me away. We rounded a corner and then we were suddenly blasted with all sorts of sounds. In a square were spotlights and strobe lights and a firework would randomly be set off... It was really weird, but especially cool! I wish I grabbed a picture of it D:
went for ice cream here ;w; The store was so cute!!
You'd go in here with an umbrella and come out completely soaked! My friends went in because they're crazy. (it was like... 5 degrees out?)
These guys were playing live trance... they were so good ;w; I wanted to start dancing, but a lot of people were walking passed so I felt too shy to do it . One of them was playing a violin, but the others transformed it to sound so awesome ;w; I wish I could've stayed longer to listen...
The rest of the night was just as great, I'm glad I was able to finally get out of my room for a change lol. Toronto's pretty awesome.
Until next time!
