Silo City Blooms With Light, Art and History for City of Night

August 17, 2013 Updated Aug 17, 2013 at 12:43 PM EDT

The second annual City of Night will transform what has been dubbed Silo City from an iconic reminder of our local history into a dreamy spectacle of light, art and performance on today from 4 p.m. – 2 a.m. The event is free to the public and the street address of the venue is 200 Childs Street, Buffalo

Inspired by Western New York’s rich industrial history, City of Night celebrates what was and what is, giving visitors a unique opportunity to interact up close with the massive grain silos on Buffalo’s waterfront while simultaneously embracing the culture and energy of new Buffalo.

Per City of Night Event Coordinator, Dana Saylor “This is our second year; we’ve ironed out the kinks and added exciting new elements: new spaces to explore, an interactive map to guide you through the site, a light garden of installations, community art project, kayak rentals, rockclimbing in a grain elevator, an artist catalogue and other
merchandise.

Food trucks will be onsite throughout the event and beer, wine and soda will also be available.
