Winnipeg’s Exchange District was the place to be this weekend for the city’s annual Nuit Blanche celebrations.

Tens of thousands of people gathered over two days at Old Market Square to enjoy music, food and displays of arts and crafts, as well as many other artistic and cultural displays on the street.

Some of the action centred around McDermot and Bannatyne was sponsored by Cloverdale Forge and Number Ten Architectural Group.

Complementing the various events at Nuit Blanche Winnipeg was an array of impressive artistic activities and entertainment, featuring great displays from top craft makers and businesses.

Added to this year’s display was The Butterfly Effect, created by artist Chantel Thiessen, where images talk to each other and create different beats.

There were also several fitness activities sponsored by Nuit Blanche Winnipeg, such as dancing.
