For those of you who have never been to Nocturne, and you are planning on heading out tonight, there are a few things that you should really know.

1) You can’t do it all – unfortunately because Nocturne is such a great event, there are so many installations to hit, you may find that there are too many places to go and things to see, so you need to figure out the best route for you.

2) It will be super busy – If you are heading to the downtown core, make sure that you are prepared for the sheer number of people that come down for Nocturne.  It is a great event and tens of thousands of people come down to the core, and on top of that there are plenty of events happening on top of Nocturne as well, so be prepared.

3) The McDonald Bridge is closed – If you are coming over from Dartmouth, keep in mind that the McDonald bridge is closed and that it may be a longer trip home.  The ferry makes a great alternative though, and there are some installations in downtown Dartmouth as well.

4) The interactive guide – this is the best way to find out what is happening with Nocturne overall.
