Imagine a city that loves its residents so incredibly much, that it throws a party for them.
From 7pm until 7am, the city shows itself off.
300,000 guests attend to honor its splendor, to discover more, and to bicker with friends over which attraction to prioritize. Melbourne transforms her streets, twisting bland landmarks into a new perspective. Guests cheer Melbourne on, lifting the city to thrive all night long. Everyone is throwing back Red Bulls and meat pies in order to keep the momentum going. Families play alongside university students and synchronized swimming is a popular attraction. Music is hidden in the side streets, and guests float past musicians pounding on five gallon buckets and 70-year-old trumpet players. It is late summer, and the night is so lit up with such joy and color!
This, my friends, is White Night Melbourne.
