TORONTO, Aug. 23, 2018 /CNW/ - Curators of the curious, standby! The skyward spectacle of spectacles returns to Toronto for a celebration from sunset to sunrise at Nuit Blanche Toronto on Saturday, September 29, 2018 from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. on the west side of Nathan Phillips Square, just steps from Toronto City Hall.

"Hendrick's is a gin that cultivates the unusual," comments Beth-Anne Perry, Senior National Brand Manager, Hendrick's Gin. "Bringing the spectacular world of Hendrick's Gin to life with our L.E.V.I.T.A.T.R.E. experience at City Hall allows us to engage our guests in a whimsically magnificent way. We are thrilled to be back in Toronto for our second year in a row and look forward to celebrating the wonder of Nuit Blanche Toronto with over 1 million Canadians who come out to enjoy it each year."

Soaring into the sky for an exclusive Nuit Blanche Toronto appearance, the 65-foot L.E.V.I.T.A.T.R.E. (Levitating, Elevating, Voluminous, Illuminating, Tantalizing, Amazingly, Towering, Roaming, Eye) will elevate golden ticket holders to 44 ¼ cucumbers (44.25 feet) to soar from sunset to sunrise for a special birds-eye view of the city.

Hendrick's Gin is also delighted to invite honored guests to the Air Departure Lounge for the peculiar pleasure of heeding the first ever notes played by the C.O.R.G.A.N. on City Hall grounds. The C.O.R.G.A.N. (aka the Cucumber Organ of Remarkably Glorious Auditory Nirvana) is a one-of-a-kind musical instrument that consists of real, whole cucumbers for keys which generate splendid sonnets of sound. 

Alas! The fanciful fun doesn't end there! Renowned Intuitive specialist Terri-Lynn Decker will also give golden ticket holders special energy readings, adding to the magic and wonderment of the Hendrick's Gin L.E.V.I.T.A.T.R.E. experience.
