One of the highlights of Edmonton’s Nuit Blanche 2015 was Yoko Ono’s Wish Tree / Imagine Peace. A temporary forest appeared in Churchill Square and the public was encouraged to write their wish on a little tag and hang it on a tree.

2015 September 26, Nuit Blanche finally comes to Edmonton. Here are some images from the first couple of hours of the all night arts celebration in and about Churchill Square.
Shortly after 7 PM the crowds start to gather in Churchill Square with the wish trees.
