On one night every March – Montreal turns several downtown areas into pockets of blazing activity, lights and colour. Spun by two manic DJ/VJ’s pulsating “chill” music punches through an atmosphere, punctuated by soft snow flakes and raucous cheering and whooping. This is Nuit blanche Montreal style… En Lumiere.

No fights, no police visible, no drinking in the streets, just folk having a good time lining up for the “glissade”; ferris wheel; laser “building” writing; food; sodas or some of the art installations and exhibitions. The atmosphere was absolutely electric. (Tony Bennet aka Antonio Benedetto) had a huge exhibition of his evocative art in the Place des Arts Gallery adjacent to all the activity.

Bravo Montreal
