White Night – A Melbourne’s Dreamy Night

White Night is a native event from Paris and was adapted by Melbourne last 2013. I was already in Melbourne when the first event happened in the city but at that time I was still new in the city I was not fully aware of the event. When I returned to Melbourne for my 3rd work assignment last February 2014, I saw ads and commercials in the streets about White Night and I wanted to attend the event.

White Night is a combination of cultural activities which not only limits in music, dance, exhibitions, performance creativeness but also showcases light shows and other interactive activities. But as I see it, one of the main feature and exciting part of the event is the spectacular light shows which held in different, famous and historical buildings within the city.

Flinders Street Station

When I arrived in Melbourne CBD, I was surprised as I never expected too many people in the streets. There were almost no free space to move around. I started to walk from Flinders Street corner Russell Street, then I tried to reach Federation Square and Flinders Street Station so I can had a grasp about Swanston Street look like. And to be honest, I don’t know how I will be able to walk in Swanston Street because of jam pack of people. When I saw the crowd it was a discovery for me that the event make people go out and just have fun for the night. I understand why people went crazy of going out in the event, one of the reason was it only happens one night for the entire year.

I was aware that the event was straight 12 hours where different events are happening and the whole schedule were published in White Night Melbourne website. Even though the event has its full of activities, I only have an hour or two stay to witness the celebration. One of the things that I enjoyed that night was the light shows along Flinders Street where I watched the shows from famous Flinders Street Station up to the corner of Russell Street. I was amazed and stunned because the buildings transformed into a white sheet used by cinema where films were played. Vivid and colorful lights made the building so amazing and I wondered how the lights made such a great show.
