Nuit blanche: Montréal en Lumière fest ends with round-the-clock events

Every year, the Nuit Blanche - White Night, literally -
ends the High Lights fest with a bang. Museums
stay open, Montrealers hit the streets for sliding,
skating, grilling marshmallows, etc. There's country
dancing at City Hall until 3AM (really!),
swimming at the Hilton Bonaventure until
5AM (really!), tango lessons at 1h15 AM (really!)
and tons of other fun events.
