I had seen signs and vague advertisements but never took notice, until a friend of mine messaged me on one warm Melbourne day “you going to White Night tonight?” Er.. well.. I had plans for a lovely dinner with friends but didn’t realise that just around the corner in Melbourne’s city streets there was an exciting and new event happening!
Old landmarks had a makeover in lights; bands were blazing out tunes from the steps of Flinders Street Station; laneways were alive with dancing ballerinas and swirls and there was free music, art shows and films playing all night until 7 in the morning.
I’ve never seen so many people (and lights!) in Melbourne, I wonder if they will do it again?
