White Night Melbourne. Where thousands of people come together and surprisingly everything was civil. Now, I asked myself if this could happen in Seattle. 7 pm to 7 am. An honest 12 hour in the middle of the night arts festival. Or would it just be utter chaos? Would they honor the arts or have the group mentality and destroy the city? They have/had White Night events in the States, in San Antonio and Chicago. I guess the Chicago one was a bust, not organized and people cared more about drinking than they did the arts. Bummer.

I have to hand it to Melbourne. They did an outstanding job at their first time. It was well organized, nothing too crazy happened, there was plenty to do and see all night long and things happening everywhere in the city. Beautiful.
