One of the busiest intersections in Toronto, King and Bay, was overtaken by art enthusiasts as the roads were blocked off for the evening festivities.

Beekeepers meditating captured an audience in the main hall of the AGO as the clock edged closer to midnight.

And finally, the much-anticipated Ai Weiwei Forever Bicycles took center stage at Nathan Phillips Square. The space swarmed with individuals armed with cameras all trying to capture that perfect angle of the compelling installation.
