People out and about Saturday evening can make their way around on foot, by bike or by using the free bus service set up for the evening.   

As for the Dartmouth–Halifax ferry, that will become a performance venue as well.  

Organizers say people can enjoy free entertainment by local performers while crossing the harbour, all for the price of a regular transit ticket.  

A full guide to the more than 80 events happening during the event is available on Nocturne's website. For those attending the arts festival who are more tech-savvy, there's an app for that.  

The festivities kick off at 6 p.m. and runs until midnight.
