Deco Decanted

Last weekend the locals and a few tourists put on their finest Art Deco outfits, and went for a leisurely Sunday stroll and drive as part of the "Deco Decanted" festival, which is the winter version of the much larger Art Deco festival the city of Napier has each February to celebrate its architectural history. Napier has one of the largest collection of Art Deco architecture due to the fact that the entire city was rebuilt after the 1931 earthquake and subsequent fire that destroyed the city. If this is the smaller version, I can't wait for the big one. They have Art Deco dinner dances, picnics, concerts, and other events. I'm already shopping for the right outfit!
