Still in Catchup mode this one was late Feb 2016
Napier turned on fabulous weather, our first trip to the Art Deco Weekend.
All in all the era of the 1930's seemed to have allot going for it with the clothing, the style of the period, the cars, the music and mix all that with wholesome family values. One feels good to be alive and this was very much the theme in Napier. Many people dressed the part and were definatly out to have a good time (in period) So nice to see people actually enjoying themselves, parading, showing off and displaying manners and style.
Something we don't see so much in todays world....or am I living in cloud cookoo land?
This blog will mostly be photos to give feel for the Weekend ...best option is to check it out for yourself next year!
Such a well balanced photo

Napier Art Deco Weekend was a blast...would love to go back again next year and take it a bit more leisurely
