White Night 2018 celebrates magic of reading

Melbourne has come alive once again with this year’s incredible White Night festivities.

Now in its sixth year, White Night is all about lighting up the city. From 7pm to 7am, the city transforms into a wonderland of lights, colour, magic and hidden surprises.

A major highlight for me this year was the State Library, which came alive to celebrate the magic of books and reading.

We entered the famous domed LaTrobe Reading Room to see the space completely transformed – books flying overhead and bringing to life their stories. From the jungles and savannahs of Africa, to the depths of the ocean and the mysterious new frontiers of space, we were taken on an incredible journey of wonder and excitement.

Other highlights included magnificent projections at the Melbourne Exhibition building, the fire-breathing Serpent Mother from Burning Man festival, live jazz concerts from shop rooftops along Swanston Street, and Little Bourke Street being transformed into a Snow Lane wonderland.

Can’t wait to see what organisers dream up for next year!
