For years, the controversial event has transformed the city for one magical evening of splendour and wonder.

The annual event gathers Vancouverites in a specific location that is kept secret until the final moments before the occasion. The dress code, of course, is to wear white from head to toe.

Previous locations include Jack Poole Plaza, Devonian Harbour Park, Harbour Park, Jack Poole Plaza, and VanDusen Botanical Gardens among others.
