Nocturne: Art at Night in Halifax

Last weekend we checked out Nocturne: Art at Night in Halifax. It's Halifax's version of Notte Bianca (Malta) or Nuit Blanche (Toronto), etc.; an all-night art festival that brings art, and crowds, into the streets of the city. It was so good to see the Halifax bustling with people - families, students, couples, seniors - all night long. The last several years I was working at a gallery during the night of Nocturne, so this year it was a treat to get to roam the streets and experience it from a different angle.

Halifax punches way about its weight in the arts. We're spoiled like that around here.

And a big thank-you to Mike for being my date for the night. It would be like if I went to an accounting festival with him, so I'll give the guy some big boyfriend points for this one.

An accounting festival... I shudder at the thought.
