Nuit Blanche: Fog and Balls at Great Heights

What a night! Fog and balls were recurring themes during my all-night Nuit Blanche journey. Of all of the fun and art (and rain) soaked up throughout the night, Fog in Toronto and Ballroom Dancing stood out. I got muddy and lost in the fog installation and let out my inner child with a bunch of friends and strangers by playing with hundreds of colourful balls in a gymnasium at 3:30am. Onward to see and do more!

After a stop for late night (or early morning), delicious Pakistani grub at King Palace, I headed for my final Nuit Blanche destination - the CN Tower.

From 6am-7am (yes, I managed to keep my eyes open and my feet moving all night), I was up in the CN Tower Skypod looking down on and feeling great about Toronto. Fog of the natural variety blanketed the city as twilight began to bring in the morning and mark the end of Nuit Blanche. As I began making my way down from the Skypod I noticed that one of the balls from the Ballroom somehow made the migration up the tower too. One of the security guards was standing there smiling - big, shiny, red ball in hand - and I felt like my Nuit Blanche had come full circle, and to an end. Toronto, I love you!
