If you've been wanting to explore the streets of the 6ix at night, this event is definitely worth staying up for. Nuit Blanche Toronto comes back to the streets in October, lighting up the night with its extravagant art installations and curated exhibitions in Scarborough and at Fort York. There'll also be a big artist installation at Nathan Phillips Square, and word is that the Raptors might have something in the works for this special night.

The 14th annual Nuit Blanche Toronto will consist of "90 contemporary art projects created by more than 300 local, national, and international artists", according to the press release

There's one special piece that the Raptors seem to have a part in, just in time for their 25th year anniversary. "Peace to the Past, Reach for the Future" is in honour of the Toronto Raptors and to celebrate the success of such a beloved team.

Creative producer Bryan Espiritu and Sculptor Esmaa Mohamoud will create an 18-foot sculpture which honours the team's past, "imagining their future and celebrating the diverse communities that support them," according to the description of the piece.

There's plenty to celebrate about the Toronto Raptors this year, after all.

And fans on Twitter are already sharing their excitement for the piece in response to the Raptors cryptic tweet.

If you're excited to see this piece and others, this years theme, Continuum, will consist of 19 art projects to discover in part of three exhibitions.

Those three exhibitions are Creation: Destruction, Kings and Queens of Scarborough, and Lunar Garden.

The Raptors piece will be located behind the backdrop of City Hall and Old City Hall. You can check out the map for a more detailed look into what's to come. 

This event is on October 5 starting at 7 p.m. and running until 7 a.m. the next day.

So, make sure to take a couple of naps that day so you can roam the streets all night!
