Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2013 Is Here Toronto, So Show Us Your Art #SnbTO! (PHOTOS)

If you're wondering why there's an arrangement of bicycles in Nathan Phillips Square tonight, it's not to protest Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's lacklustre love for the city's cyclists -- it's actually a work of art.

One of 112 to be exact and all part of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche. The Parisian-inspired art festival is now in full swing and brings sculptures, live performances and all kinds of installations from 500 artists to the masses for one sleepless night.

Last year's event saw over one million people in attendance -- 117,000 of which were tourists by the city's estimate -- to soak in the creative craft of local, national and international artists. Like last year, Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2013 is one of those festivities best enjoyed in person.

But if you're like us and currently stuck behind a computer screen, the next best thing is to live vicariously through the photos of everyone else. And if you couldn't make it to Toronto this time, there's always Montreal, Calgary and Ottawa in 2014.

Here's what you're currently missing out on if you're not at Toronto's Nuit Blanche right now:
